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.
Pasteur-Paris University International doctoral program
In collaboration with the universities Paris-Descartes, Paris-Diderot and Pierre et Marie Curie, the Institut Pasteur organizes an international doctoral program, the "Pasteur-Paris University International Doctoral Program" (PPU). This program is entirely organized in English.
In 2009, the Institut Pasteur inaugurated the Pasteur-Paris university international doctoral program in collaboration with several Parisian universities for students holding a Master degree from a university outside of France.
Through the development and execution of a scientific project, as well as the attendance to academic courses and professional development trainings, students complete a rich and interdisciplinary program.
The program is aimed at students holding, at the date of their enrolment in the program, a master degree or the equivalent in science, medicine and related fields from an university outside from France.
