Pasteur, Louis

(1822–95) French bacteriologist who was effectively the founder of microbiology as a science. He put forward the theory that disease was caused by microorganisms and established that SPONTANEOUS GENERATION does not occur. He established that inoculation with attenuated forms (see ATTENUATION of microorganisms provided immunization against virulent forms, and showed that rabies was caused by microscopic agents which could not be seen, so leading to the discovery of viruses. He introduced heat treatment to destroy microorganisms in perishable products such as milk (see PASTEURIZATION).
