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.
The Scientific Division is responsible for the development and implementation of the scientific strategy for the Institut Pasteur. Its primary task is to identify key research topics and to leverage the technical and human resources required. To achieve this aim ,the division works in close association with the department heads and with the Scientific Council.
The Scientific Division reviews projects and research programs proposed by scientists, and selects for particular encouragement those that are original, innovative and consistent with the mission and strategies of the Institut Pasteur. The division also directs Institut Pasteur scientists towards new research areas to and handles all of the elated development tasks.
Foremost among the strategic impact of this division are the creation of new 5-year research groups and units, budget, space and equipment allocations, grant submissions, and securing necessary research agreements.
The Scientific Council is a trusted advisor to the Scientific Division, which works closely with its different subdivisions to accomplish tasks, notably :
The Teaching Department responsible for all Institut Pasteur teaching activity and studentships on the campus ;
The Medical Department, concerned with public health matters related to National Reference Centers for communicable diseases (hosted by the Institut Pasteur), clinical research and healthcare in the Institut Pasteur Medical Center.
