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.

Head of Unit: Pr Claude Leclerc, PhD
The general objective of unit of Immune Regulation & Vaccinology is to bridge the gap between fundamental immunology and vaccine development, combining our expertise in vaccinology and our commitment to elucidation of the mechanisms by which immune responses are induced and regulated.
Our strategy is based on a highly integrated and fully dynamic program, the clinical and fundamental aspects of which being complementary, and leading to new concepts in vaccination and their validation in various experimental models and clinical trials.
Our main activities are focused on the understanding of the mechanisms that control the activation and regulation of T cell responses in adults and neonates and on the development of new strategies of vaccination against cancers and infections.
Prix du Conseil Général 2013 Prize to Claude Leclerc
On June 13, 2013, Claude Leclerc received the Prize of the Conseil Général for her work on the development of anti-cancer vaccines and her contribution to the understanding of the host-tumor interaction.
Georges, Jacques et Elias Canetti 2012 Prize to Claude Leclerc
Claude Leclerc received the Jacques et Elias Canetti 2012 Prize on December 4th.
Her laboratory activity is focused on the understanding of the mechanisms that control the activation and regulation of T cell responses and on the development of new strategies of vaccination against tumors and infections.
