Trailblazer Alexander Fleming was a man who made one of the greatest discoveries in the history of medicine. After his medical training, Fleming looked for ways to control the growth of bacteria. He discovered the bacteria-destroying properties of penicillin after observing that mold inhibited the growth of one type of bacteria. This observation led to the use of penicillin as an antibiotic and its development into a wonder drug that has saved millions of people from disease and death.
