I deeply appreciate the honor of having been asked to give this lecture dedicated to the memory of Earl C. Suitor, Jr. Dr. Suitor had all too few years in which to work. Yet the stimulating effect of his research on the whole field of arthropod cell culture has been apparent throughout the course of this symposium and testifies to the burgeoning activity of this field — an activity that Dr. Suitor himself helped to create. He published several papers that pointed out some of the important lines of investigation now being followed (Suitor, 1966a, b, 1969). Among these was a paper by Wood and Suitor (1966) on the development of a microfilaria in mosquito cell cultures, an illustration of the application of arthropod cell culture to parasitology, one of the subjects I would like to discuss.
