“I am utterly convinced that Science and Peace will triumph over Ignorance and War, that nations will eventually unite not to destroy but to edify, and that the future will belong to those who have done the most for the sake of suffering humanity”.

Louis Pasteur

1822 – 1895

French microbiologist and chemist, founder of modern microbiology and immunology.

He became the founder of a number of sciences: stereochemistry – the science of the spatial arrangement of atoms in molecules, microbiology and immunology. The scientist proved that fermentation is a biological phenomenon and is the result of the vital activity of yeast fungi that live without oxygen. Pasteur proposed a method of preserving food using heat treatment (called pasteurization). Pasteur devoted himself entirely to immunology, studying the essence of various diseases. The microbiologist has developed a vaccine against anthrax and rabies. He took the first step in the history of vaccination.

Pasteur created the world scientific school of microbiologists, many of his students later became the greatest scientists. Pasteur was a convinced friend of Russia and was in close relations with many Russian scientists.
