Fleming, Sir Alexander

Sir Alexander Fleming was a Scottish scientist who discovered the first ever antibiotic.

This was penicillin, an excellent drug for killing bacteria. In 1928, in his lab he noticed that a mould had formed in his dish. It was killing the bacteria. From this mould came penicillin.
