Louis Pasteur

Louis Pasteur was born in Jura in France on 27 December 1822, and died in Marnes-to-Coquette the 28 September 1895, aged 73. He was a scientist, a chemist and a French physicist. In 1865, Louis Pasteur invented “pasteurization”, a method to protect and preserve wines during their transportation. They are heated for some time, then rapidly cooled.
In the year 1880, Pasteur and his colleagues note that some bacteria prevent rabies to occur in animals, and they are protected against subsequent infection. In 1885, Pasteur create a vaccine against rabies. On 6 July, his first test was made on a 14 year old boy named Joseph Meister. He was bitten by a rabid dog. The test is satisfactory because he does not contract rabies. In October, another boy is bitten, he is successfully vaccinated. The news spread quickly and many patients are being vaccinated. Three years later, an institute under the name of Pasteur was inaugurated, and is dedicated to immunization and research.
