Abstract
Alexander Fleming's discovery of penicillin in his London lab in 1928 led to its eventual development by a team at Oxford University, headed by Howard Florey and Ernest Chain, yet the pair are rarely remembered. This book goes behind the science to reveal the quirky history of the antibiotic. - Website
