Bordet, Jules-Jean-Baptiste-Vincent
(1870-1961).
   Born in Zinnik, in the province of Hainault, on 13 June 1870, Jules Bordet studied bacteriology and seriology. In 1901, he was appointed director of the Institut Pasteur and, in 1907, a professor in bacteriology at the Université libre de Bruxelles. In 1906, with Octave Gen-gou (1875-1957), he identified the bacteria that causes whooping cough, which was named for him (Bordetellapertussis). Bordet was awarded the Nobel Prize in physiology (or medicine) in 1919 for his discoveries concerning immunities. He died in Brussels on 6 April 1961.
