Great Thinkers: Louis Pasteur

Chance favors the prepared mind  – Louis Pasteur



Louis Pasteur at work in his lab.

Our latest “Great Thinkers” video is about Louis Pasteur. Everyone recognizes his name because of pasteurization, a process he invented which we still use today.  But did you know he was the first chemist to demonstrate molecules could be chiral (left- or right-handed)?  When he developed a rabies vaccine he was hailed as an international hero.

Watch our video to remember his other invaluable contributions – and why we call him “The Father of Microbiology.”
