Dr. ATW Simeons
Dr. Simeons was born in London and graduated in medicine (summa cum laude) at the University of Heidelberg.
After post-graduate studies in Germany and Switzerland he was appointed to a large surgical hospital near Dresden. Later he became engrossed in the study of tropical diseases, and joined the School of Tropical Medicine in Hamburg.
Then followed two years of work in Africa. In 1931 he went to India, where he found himself so fascinated by the country and its health problems that he stayed for eighteen years.
He discovered the use of injectable atebrin for malaria (.PDF Format. Adobe Acrobat Reader) for which he was awarded a Red Cross Order of Merit, and also a new method of staining malaria parasites now known as “Simeons’ stain.”
During the War he held several important posts under the Government of India and conducted extensive research on bubonic plague and leprosy control, and a model leper colony which he built has now become an all-India center.
It was during these years that his interest in psychosomatic diseases began to grow:
After India became independent he set up in private practice in Bombay and was frequently consulted by the Government. In 1949, with his wife and three sons, he moved to Rome, where he worked on psychosomatic disorders at the Salvator Mundi International Hospital, until his decease in 1970.
Dr. Simeons is the author of several medical books and has contributed to many scientific publications..
