Louis Pasteur (December 27, 1822 – September 28, 1895) was a French chemist and microbiologist renowned for his discoveries of the principles of vaccination, microbial fermentation and pasteurization.

He is associated with his exceptional forward leaps in the causes and anticipations of maladies, and his disclosures have spared endless lives from that point onward.

He decreased mortality from puerperal fever, and made the principal antibodies for rabies and Bacillus anthracis. His clinical revelations offered direct help for the germ hypothesis of sickness and its application in clinical medication.

He is most popular to the overall population for his development of the method of getting milk and wine to stop bacterial defilement, a procedure currently called sanitization. He is viewed as one of the three primary originators of bacteriology, along with Ferdinand Cohn and Robert Koch, and is prevalently known as the "father of microbiology".
