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.
Prof. Alain Israël was awarded a PhD in Biochemistry from the University of Lyon 1 in 1980 after completing research in J. Huppert’s laboratory.
He held a postdoctoral fellowship in Stanley Cohen’s laboratory in the Genetics Department at Stanford University and then in 1983 joined Philippe Kourilsky’s unit at the Institut Pasteur, continuing his research on the regulation of class I MHC gene expression.
Since 1992 he has led the Cell Signaling and Activation Unit at the Institut Pasteur.
Professor Israël holds many positions of responsibility within various research organizations and is notably a member of the CNRS Scientific Council and France's National Academy of Sciences.
