In 1948, Elizabeth Lee Hazen and Rachel Fuller Brown teamed up to develop nystatin, the first non-toxic drug treatment for fungal infections in humans. Hazen and Brown were doing research for the Division of Laboratories and Research of the New York State Department of Health, when Hazen found a promising micro-organism in the soil of a friend's dairy farm. She named it Streptomyces noursei, after William Nourse, the farm's owner.
