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.
Tackling TB in the Age of Austerity: ensuring we use novel tools and approaches cost-effectively
Abstract: TB diagnoses in the UK remain high, having risen for two decades, and novel approaches to control are urgently needed. Limited resources mean interventions must be cost-effective, which requires effective targeting of both case-finding and support for treatment adherence. Assessing cost-effectiveness involves considering not just the benefits to individuals who are diagnosed and treated, but also calculation of how much transmission is averted by earlier treatment of active disease, or treatment of latent infection, which prevents active disease from occurring at all. We use mathematical modelling to evaluate novel approaches to finding patients, new diagnostics, and treatment approaches.
