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.
”There is no category of science that can be named applied science.
There is science AND the applications of science, bound to each other like fruit to the tree that bears it.” by Louis Pasteur
The Institut Pasteur is one of the most prestigious health research institutions in the world, with a century-old focus on infectious diseases and a significant research effort on cancer, immunological, genetic and neuro-degenerative diseases. Over its history, 10 Institut Pasteur researchers have been awarded a Nobel Prize.
The Institut Pasteur has always worked closely with the industry and our researchers are increasingly interacting with industrial groups.
Based on the complementarity of its members' skills, The Business Development and Technology Transfer Department operates as a gateway between inside research and outside product development. Its mandate is to protect and promote the results of research undertaken at the Institut Pasteur. By reinvesting the income from commercialization into our research programs, the interest of the whole scientific community and, subsequently, public health, are supported.
The value chain of Innovation at the Institut Pasteur
The Business Development and Industrial Partnerships Department works in coordination with Institut Pasteur scientists to identify inventions or know-how that have clear potential commercial value. The next step involves protection and, where appropriate, commercialization. The interface with the research teams is provided by the presence of a scientist trained in technology transfer within each research department. The efficiency of this Department team stems from the complementarities of its members' skills and knowledge in legal, scientific, marketing, intellectual property, negotiation and financial matters, etc.
