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 Industrial Partnership team is to detect, promote, assist and protect the inventive activities from research (inventions, know-how and biological materials) conducted at the Institut Pasteur (and in some Institutes of its international network), and transfer there to industrial and/or institutional partners, in order to serve the patient needs and for the benefit of the society, as well as to contribute to sustainability of the Institut Pasteur’s resources.
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.
Christophe Mauriet, Senior Executive Vice President administration
Christophe Mauriet was appointed Senior Executive Vice President of Institut Pasteur in September 2008 and was given responsibility for all financial, personnel, administrative and technical affairs as well as technology transfer and patents and business development.
Since he joined Institut Pasteur, his attention and care have been focused on the development of up-to-date management processes of the resources dedicated to scientific research in life sciences, public health and higher education in an ever-increasingly complex environment. His most noticeable projects include the completion and commissioning of a 20,000 sq meters high-tech building, the streamlining of the support functions of the institute and the enhancement of the investment performance of Institut Pasteur’s endowment.
His most significant involvements in the field of science management had previously included a three year period as French Government representative on the Financial Committee of CERN (European Nuclear Research Organization) in Geneva and the financial supervision of the major French public scientific institutes (CNRS, CNES, CEA, etc).
Christophe Mauriet studied law and political science at the Université de Bordeaux and Sciences-Po Bordeaux, and graduated from the Ecole Nationale d’Administration in 1995. He has held a series of positions in the field of public management and finances, successively with Home Affairs Ministry, the Treasury, the Ministry of Education and Science and, most recently within Government, with the Ministry of Defence, where he was deputy CFO until August 2008.
