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 mission of the Industrial Partnership team is to detect, promote, assist and protect the inventive activities from research (inventions, know-how and biological materials) conducted at the Institut Pasteur (and in some Institutes of its international network), and transfer there to industrial and/or institutional partners, in order to serve the patient needs and for the benefit of the society, as well as to contribute to sustainability of the Institut Pasteur’s resources.
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.
The research for the development of a preventive anti-HIV vaccine has used every established technology that yielded effective vaccines against other pathogens, yet it has failed to afford effective and long lasting protection both in monkey models and in humans.
These failures dramatically highlight the need to define the immune correlates of protection against HIV infection for vaccine research and the correlates of protection against AIDS for immunotherapy.
Along these lines, our Unit is focusing its research on the mechanisms of host control of HIV infection both at the cell level and at the level of the immune response.
Françoise Barré-Sinoussi was awarded the 2008 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine jointly with Luc Montagnier and Harlad zu Hausen. In 2014 she heads the Regulation of Retroviral Infections Unit.
Since November 1st 2014, the Teams of Michaela Müller-Trutwin and Asier Sáez-Cirión have constituted a new research unit at Institut Pasteur: “HIV, inflammation and persistence”, under the direction of Michaela. The description of their activities will be available soon in the new unit’s website.
We are based at the Institut Pasteur in Paris (28 rue du Dr Roux, 15th arrondissement), close to the "Pasteur" and "Volontaires" metro stations (line 6 or 12).
Our lab is located on the Third floor of the François JACOB building (n°26 on the map below).
