Louis Pasteur laid the foundation for the germ theory of disease with his research on the bacterial souring of milk, where he implied that microbes might be related to human illness.

A is incorrect because, although Robert Koch provided the verification of the germ theory of disease with the development of Koch's Postulates, his work occurred almost 20 years after the original suggestion by Pasteur.

B is incorrect because Ronald Ross performed his research on malaria several decades after the formulation of Koch's Postulates.

D is incorrect because Walter Reed performed his research on yellow fever several decades after the formulation of Koch's Postulates.
