LOUIS

PASTEUR

Louis Pasteur’s work revolutionized

modern medicine. By establishing

a link between infections and

microorganisms in

1857

, Louis

Pasteur left his mark on science

and medicine with one of the

most important breakthroughs in

the history of medicine.

His discoveries paved the way

for the development of the

first vaccines, and namely the

rabies vaccine. Louis Pasteur

also helped to improve hospital

practices, thereby increasing

control over infectious diseases.

A SCIENTIFIC

VISIONARY

Louis Pasteur spearheaded

a fundamental breakthrough

in food and hygiene with

pasteurization, a process that kills

pathogenic microorganisms in

perishable foodstuffs.

Pasteur devoted the latter years

of his life to founding Institut

Pasteur, a non-profit organization

geared towards disease

prevention and treatment.

Sanofi Pasteur is still a partner

with Institut Pasteur to this day.
