Insta-Scientist

I chose Alexander Fleming because he was a physician-scientist and I think that would be an interesting job to have. He had many brilliant discoveries and even discovered penicillin by accident! I chose A_Fleming1928 for his Instagram account because the year 1928 was when he discovered penicillin.
