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

Chain
. Modern antibiotics are tested using a method similar to Fleming’s
discovery.
