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 Institut Pasteur develops and coordinates major international projects and consortia to answer the challenges of international public health. This research, closely linked to the countries’ health needs, is a commitment in the fight against infectious diseases of poverty (AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria), the major causes of pediatric mortality and morbidity and chronic diseases induced by infectious agents (cancer).
The ECOMORE project deals with economic development and impact of environmental modifications on human health in Cambodia, Lao PDR, Vietnam and Myanmar.
Specific objectives of this project are to:
> Decipher the major ecological mechanisms responsible for emergence of infectious diseases
> Assess the actual risk for local population health
> Release appropriate recommendations for implementing public health interventions
> Provide validated methodological tools
> Contribute to enhance national & regional collaborations
