  • Research Career

    Research Career
    In 1843 Pasteur went to the École Normale Supérieure,a school for college teachers, where he listened to lectures by French chemist Jean-Baptiste-André Dumas and he became Dumas's assistant teacher.
  • The Pasteur Family

  • Discoveries

    Pasteur developed vaccines against anthrax and rabies. He discovered that microorganisms cause fermentation and disease.
  • Breakthroughs

    Pasteur is remembered for his incredible breakthroughs in the causes and preventions of diseases. His discoveries decreased deaths from the puerperal fever.His experiments supported the germ theory of disease. He was best known to the general public for inventing a method to stop milk and wine from making people sick, something thats called pasteurization.
  • Experimenting

    Pasteur spent about 4 years experimenting on the germ theory of diesease. He worked on a diease named chicken cholera. While trying to find a cure, he came across chemicals and invented a vaccine to rabies. This invention is saving many people's lives in the late 1800's all the way until today
  • Advancing the Germ Theory

    Advancing the Germ Theory
    Pasteur was not the first to investigate the germ theory, he developed it and made experiments that indicated its true statements and managed to convince most of Europe it was true. Today he is often called as the father of germ theory and bacteriology.
  • Germ Theory of Disease

    Germ Theory of Disease
    The Germ Theory of Disease is basically a theory that states that microorganisms are the cause of many diseases.The germ theory was corrected in the late 19th century and is now used in modern medicine and microbiology. This theory led to important innovations as antibiotics and hygienic practices.

    Helping Modern Medicine
    Today, Pasteur discoveries are helping thousands of researchers discover new cures to modern diseases. His advance in the germ theory of disease anhanced our looks at germs and how they can affect us.
