Biologist (1881–1955)Alexander Fleming was a doctor and bacteriologist who discovered penicillin, the first true antibiotic. Professor of Bacteriology at St. Mary's Hospital in London. receiving the Nobel Prize in 1945.
Returning from holiday on September 3, 1928, Fleming began to sort through petri dishes containing colonies of "Staphylococcus", bacteria that cause boils, sore throats and abscesses. He noticed something unusual on one dish. It was dotted with colonies, save for one area where a blob of mold was growing. The zone immediately around the mold—later identified as a rare strain of "Penicillium notatum"—was clear, as if the mold had secreted something that inhibited bacterial growth.
