sabin

Albert Sabin (1906-1993), physician and virologist. Polish but naturalized American, famous for having developed the most used vaccine against polio. He worked for thirty years at the University of Cincinnati (Kentucky), where in 1946 he was appointed chief of pediatric research. In 1939 he announced to the scientific community his first important discovery about the nature of polio virus that attacks the nerve fibers and between 1954-55 he developed the vaccine that it was not patented; he gave up the commercial exploitation to ensure its dissemination. He declared: "Many insisted I patented the vaccine, but I did not. It 's my gift to all children of the world." He was a guest of the Grand in the seventies during his visit in Italy and in particular to pharmaceutical plants Sigurtà.
