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.
The mission of the Research Applications and Industrial Partnerships Department is to detect, foster, protect, market and manage the innovations emerging from the Institut Pasteur campus. The Department is aiming at setting up fruitful cooperations with industrial and institutional partners both in France and abroad for the benefit of patients and public health.
The members of the Research Applications and Industrial Partnerships Department and Institut Pasteur scientists work together to identify and protect inventions and expertise with potential health benefits in order to value them. Relations with the research teams are coordinated by scientists trained in business development. The department’s overall efficiency is based on its members’ complementary skills in scientific fields as well as in intellectual property rights, negotiations of health product contracts, new companies set-up and financial management.
The Institut Pasteur invests the revenue from its partnerships, licenses, and material transfer agreements back into research programs thereby contributing to new knowledge generation and to public health.
