The Treponema Pallidum: Observations on Its Occurrence and Demonstration in Syphilitic Lesions
During his years at the Hoagland Laboratory, between 1909 and 1913, Avery received broad practical training in various fields
ranging from bacteriology to immunology. This article, his first published work, is on the bacterial agent that causes syphilis
in humans. Although coauthored with the lab's director, Benjamin White, it is indicative of most of his work in the period
when he was a research scientist in training.
