1885 - Louis Pasteur successfully tests his vaccine against rabies. The patient is Joseph Meister, a boy who was bitten by a rabid dog.
Louis Pasteur (December 27, 1822 – September 28, 1895) was a French microbiologist and chemist. He is best known for demonstrating how to prevent milk and wine from going sour, which came to be called pasteurization. His experiments confirmed the germ theory of disease, and he created the first vaccine for rabies. He became one of the founders of bacteriology, the other major figure being Robert Koch. He also made many discoveries in the field of chemistry, most notably the asymmetry of crystals.
