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.
Research in the department relies on strong and diverse expertise and trainings, unique cohorts of patients, and isolates/vectors collected in Metropolitan France and abroad.
The Infection and Epidemiology Department has a global vision on hosts, pathogens and their interactions, and considers working on samples and data originating from well-characterized human cohorts and taking into account the diversity of the hosts and of the pathogens as a way to maximize the future clinical and public health relevance of our research findings.
