The Pasteur Museum is housed in the apartment where Louis Pasteur spent his final seven years and offers a rare behind-the-scenes look at the living and working environment of the world-renowned scientist. Visitors can gain a unique insight into his everyday life alongside his wife and can admire his rich and diverse scientific work.
The Institut Pasteur’s scientific strategy focuses on developing original and innovative topics and promoting interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary cooperation and approaches. The Institut Pasteur teams have access to the technological resources needed to speed up and further improve the quality of their outstanding research.
Ever since the introduction of the world’s first "Technical Microbiology" course in 1889, teaching has been a priority for the Institut Pasteur. The Institut Pasteur has an international reputation for quality teaching that attracts students from all over the world who come to further their training or top up their degree programs.
With international courses, PhD and postdoctoral traineeship, each institute of the Institut Pasteur International Network (RIIP) contributes to the transmission of knowledge with the training of young researchers all around the world. In this context, doctoral and postdoctoral programmes, study and traineeship fellowships are available to scientists. Alongside training, dynamism and attractiveness of RIIP will result in the creation of 4-year group for the young researchers.

The Conseil Pasteur-Weizmann
A landmark Scientific Cooperation agreement was signed in 1975 by Professor Michael Sela, then President of the Weizmann Institute, and Professor Jacques Monod, Director of the Institut Pasteur. A joint association, the Conseil Pasteur-Weizmann, was established, whose main aim and task has been to promote and support the active scientific cooperation programs between the two Institutions.
The Conseil Pasteur-Weizmann is led by Dr. Robert Parienti, Delegate-General of the Weizmann Institute in France and Europe and the Chairman is M. Bernard Esambert. The Conseil Pasteur-Weizmann elects every three years a Scientific Council which consists of scientists from both institutions. The different programs and relations between the institutes are handled by two coordinators, Dr. Nancy Guillen from Institut Pasteur and Pr. Avraham Levy from the Weizmann Institute.
The Scientific Council has established a number of active programs:
- an annual competitive distribution of joint research grants,
- an exchange program of scientists for short term visits,
- a program to fund Postdoc candidates from one institute to the other,
- and the sponsoring of a joint symposium which alternates every two years between the Pasteur Institute in Paris and the Weizmann institute in Rehovot.
