Alexander Fleming

Alexander Fleming shared a Nobel Prize with Florey and Chain in 1945 for the isolation
of the antibiotic substance penicillin from the fungus Penicillium notatum in 1928.

It was a discovery that would change the course of history. The active ingredient in that
mold, which Fleming named penicillin, turned out to be an infection-fighting agent of
enormous potency. When it was finally recognized for what it was � the most
efficacious life-saving drug in the world � penicillin would alter forever the treatment of
bacterial infections.
