Penicillin Discovered In 1928, Alexander Fleming famously left a petri dish out on his bench at St. Mary's Hospital, London during a two-week vacation. Upon returning, he observed that the Penicillium notatum mold was inhibiting the growth of Staphylococcus bacteria, leading to the discovery of penicillin. He eventually received the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1945.
