Jules was born in 1870 in Belgium and earned a doctorate in Medicine in 1992 from Brussels University.  He joined Pasteur Institute in 1894 where he was engaged in the Metcnikoff’s laboratory. It is here that he developed interest in the nature and formation of antibodies. His pioneering work in the field of immunology culminated in the 1919 award of the coveted  Noble Prize in Physiology or Medicine “for his discoveries relating to immunity” (Noble Prize Foundation, 2009). The prize was established in 1985 by Alfred Nobel and is awarded by Karolinska Institute of Sweden bust it was not until 1901 when its was awarded to Emil Adolf von Behring of German, the first recipient

His pioneering work in immunities will be remembered by all generations for prior to this discovery there was no method of immunization. Before then there was no way through which pathogens could be known and besides there was no practical way of creating immunities that were artificial. Jules Bordet became the first scientist to study the immune system experimentally by discovering a method by which fowl cholera could be immunized (Debré, & Forster, 1998)
