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.
Since 2013, the Institut Pasteur organizes each year a ceremony for the students who have graduated during the year. This both solemn and festive event is open to all people working on campus and to family and friends of the newly graduated students, as well as representatives of partner organizations.
The ceremony is inaugurated by an honorary guest who speaks about general themes such as the practice of science, the processes of discovery in research and his/her personal career. Each graduate has one minute and one slide to present him/herself and his/her thesis project. A certificate of the Institut Pasteur is awarded to each graduate on this occasion. The ceremony closes with a friendly moment with a buffet.
The 2013 ceremony was held on September 30th, in the presence of Jules Hoffmann, recipient of the CNRS Gold Medal and the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine (2011).
The 2014 ceremony will be held on December 12th, 2014, in the presence of Cédric Viallani, recipient of the Fields Medal (2010).
The organizing committee: Sylvie Malot, Monica Sala & Deshmukh Gopaul.
