Selman Waksman was born in Ukraine on Sunday, July 22, 1888 (G.I. Generation generation). He is 135 years old and is a Cancer. Selman Abraham Waksman (July 22, 1888 – August 16, 1973) was a Russian-born, Jewish-American inventor, biochemist and microbiologist whose research into organic substances—largely into organisms that live in soil—and their decomposition promoted the discovery of Streptomycin, and several other antibiotics. A professor of biochemistry and microbiology at Rutgers University for four decades, he discovered over twenty antibiotics (a word which he coined) and introduced procedures that have led to the development of many others. The proceeds earned from the licensing of his patents funded a foundation for microbiological research, which established the Waksman Institute of Microbiology located on Rutgers University’s Busch Campus in Piscataway, New Jersey (USA). In 1952 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in recognition “for his discovery of “streptomycin,” the first antibiotic active against tuberculosis.” Waksman was later accused of playing down the role of Albert Schatz, a PhD student who did the work under Waksman’s supervision to discover streptomycin. Using the money earned from his antibiotics patents, he established the Waksman Foundation for Microbiology.

After earning bachelor’s and master’s degrees in agriculture from Rutgers University, he received a PhD in biochemistry from the University of California, Berkeley. Selman Waksman is a member of Richest Celebrities and Biologists.
