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 ‘Unité de Parasitologie moléculaire et Signalisation (ParSig)’ investigates the parasite-specific biology of Leishmania, an important human pathogen that causes severe mortality and morbidity worldwide.
We apply systems-wide approaches and innovative genetic techniques to reveal unique regulatory mechanisms underlying parasite development and intracellular survival. Our major objective is to translate our basic research findings into pre-clinical application through pharmacological and genetic drug target validation, and the development and application of target-based and phenotypic screening assays. Our translational research program is based on the coordination of multi-disciplinary consortia, including LEISHDRUG, TRANSLEISH, TranSig or LeiSHield, which interface academic, private, and industrial partners as well as laboratories from the IP International Network (IPIN) for anti-leishmanial drug development.
