Caption: Andrew Jackson Moyer (1881-1959), US microbiologist and pencillin pioneer. Moyer is seen working in his Peoria laboratory, Illinois, USA, where he discovered the process for the mass production of the antibiotic drug penicillin from a Penicillium fungus. This work was carried out in the period from 1941 to 1944, building on the work done by Florey and Heatley. This work by Moyer led directly to the production of huge quantities of penicillin that saved the lives of many soldiers during the D-Day invasion of Normandy at the end of World War 2.
