Her will dictated that the proceeds went to the Pasteur Institute in Paris for its pioneering fight against AIDS.
Pasteur, with great trepidation, but moved by his usual compassion, undertook the case.
For the right apprehension of all these facts we are indebted to Pasteur.
These discoveries at the opening of Pasteur's career brought him at once to the front among the scientific men.
On that investigation all Pasteur's subsequent labours were based.
After two years of infirmity, Pasteur at length began to feel the recovery of health.
That should be enough to tell you about the modern Pasteur and his mutant virus.
In 1865 Pasteur was called upon to exercise his scientific acumen on behalf of the silk industry.
The flow from the Berkefeld filter is more rapid than from the Pasteur.
This act of Pasteur's is, perhaps, the boldest thing recorded in this book.
Pasteur Pas·teur (pās-tûr', pä-stɶr'), Louis. 1822-1895.
French chemist who founded modern microbiology, invented pasteurization, and developed vaccines for anthrax, rabies, and chicken cholera.
French chemist who founded modern microbiology. His early work with fermentation led him to invent the process of pasteurization. Pasteur established that microorganisms cause communicable diseases and infections.
Our Living Language : Through his experiments with bacteria in the 1860s, French chemist Louis Pasteur disproved the centuries-old belief that disease was caused by spontaneous generation, the idea that disease-causing parasites arise spontaneously in an organism. Pasteur demonstrated that the fermentation of wine to vinegar was caused by living agents that entered the wine from the air surrounding it, proving instead that microorganisms were able to reproduce. Drawing the conclusion that airborne agents could enter the bodies of humans and animals and cause disease, he then devoted his research to isolating the organisms that cause specific diseases and finding treatments to prevent them. He developed vaccines for anthrax, chicken cholera, and rabies. Pasteur's germ theory of disease was not immediately accepted, but thanks to the work of other pioneering scientists, such as Robert Koch, it eventually provided the foundation for modern branches of medicine such as microbiology, bacteriology, virology, and immunology. Pasteur is also known for developing pasteurization (originally for wine), a process of heating and rapidly cooling liquids that is used to kill disease-causing bacteria, particularly in dairy products.
