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.
Modeling novel strategies for controlling mosquito-borne diseases
Abstract: Dengue is the most significant mosquito-borne viral infection of humans, causing hundreds of millions of infections annually. The main line of attack against dengue has been traditional mosquito control measures, such as insecticides. The coming years will see the broadening of our anti-dengue arsenal to include genetically-modified mosquitoes, biocontrol methods---such as Wolbachia---and vaccines. Mathematical models are being, and have been, used to assess the feasibility and effectiveness of a number of these approaches at various stages of their development. In this talk, I shall discuss the biological bases of some of these novel strategies and the accompanying modeling work, illustrating the use of a number of different models as the projects move along the path from theoretical proposals, through lab-based studies to field deployment.
