Photo: FeverLab members under a fever tree (Acacia xanthophloea) on the Tucson campus of the University of Arizona, on the southwest side of Cochise Hall. The tree in the photo is the only fever tree on campus and is the biggest in Tucson. It was planted in the 1970's from a seed that came from San Diego's Wild Animal Park. Left to right: Camila Almeida, Andrej Romanovsky, Eszter Pakai, and Andras Garami.

The common name of the tree, fever tree, comes from the misunderstanding of early settlers in Africa. The tree grows in swamp areas conducive to malaria mosquitoes, and people thought that the tree was the cause of the malaria fever. The photo was taken on March 10, 2008, immediately after Andrej Romanovsky's talk on fever at the department of pharmacology. Next day, Andras Garami, an expert on fever himself, developed a high fever. Andras and the entire FeverLab are still convinced that this was due to the exposure to the fever tree.

FeverLab with Dr. Petersen, August 2012

The photo is taken on the helicopter pad of St. Joseph's Hospital, Level 1 Trauma Center, with the midtown Phoenix behind and below. FeverLab is a part of the Trauma Research program. Scott R. Petersen, MD, is the director of Trauma Services. In 1986, Dr. Petersen started the first Trauma Lab at St. Joe's, with Dr. Malayappa Jeevanandam serving as the first research lab director. During that time, the laboratory studied the metabolic consequences of trauma disease.
