Sir Alexander Fleming  (6 August 1881 – 11 March 1955) He died
in London of a heart attack.

Fleming was a Scottish physician, microbiologist, and pharmacologist. His
best-known discoveries are the
enzyme lysozyme in 1923 and the world’s
first
antibiotic substance benzylpenicillin (Penicillin G) from the mold
Penicillium notatum in 1928, for which he shared the
Nobel Prize in
Physiology or Medicine
in 1945 with Howard Florey and Ernst Boris
Chain
. Modern antibiotics are tested using a method similar to Fleming’s
discovery.
