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.
Good research practice is not possible without ethical rules to guide the way. The Institut Pasteur has an Ethics Charter outlining the broad principles guiding research practice within its walls.
The Institut Pasteur Ethics Charter affirms the foundation’s commitment to conducting its research within a strict ethical framework, contributing to the respect of ethical considerations in research on living beings and human dignity, and upholding human rights. The Institut Pasteur Ethics Charter is consistent with the codes of ethics recognized by the international community.
The Ethics Charter was drawn up by the Ethical Vigilance Committee. It is published under the authority of the general management and contains a series of regulations and reference texts for the Institut Pasteur and anyone who works there regardless of their role. The charter is re-examined and updated on an annual basis to account for developments in international and national legislation, as well as ethical issues raised by progress in research.
