What he did
Dr Edward Jenner pioneered vaccination (against smallpox) at this house and it is said his work has saved more lives than any other man who has ever lived. Jenner's development of the first-ever Vaccine eventually led to the eradication of smallpox in 1980 and the development of the Science of Immunology.Read more
