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.
Our research group applies a top-down approach with the aim of understanding the neural and cellular basis of sensory perception, learning, and memory in rodents.
We chose the mouse because it learns fast and effectively in spontaneous conditions and under constraint, in laboratory conditions. We try to relate the various levels of analysis to each other by asking the same questions at the behavioral, neural, cellular, and molecular level. Our ultimate goal is to understand the mechanisms of plasticity in the mammalian olfactory system.
Our laboratory is supported by the Fondation pour la Recherche Médicale, Groupe Ionis, Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR-2007-SEST-015 03), the Groupe Arpège, and Ecole des Neurosciences de Paris (ENP). Also, our lab is a member of the Network of European Neuroscience Institutes (ENI-NET; LSHM-CT -2005-019063).
