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.
This four-week course presents an integrated overview of vaccinology, from public health data and scientific results justifying the development of a vaccine up to its delivery to the populations in the context of industrialized and developing countries.
The Vaccinology course comprises four modules :
Introduction to vaccinology, an integrative discipline.
Preclinical and clinical steps: basic principles.
Update on vaccine development for the major infectious diseases.
The course also includes methodology workshops based on a partnership with the HSeT Foundation which has developed an e-learning website dedicated to the course. Personalized tutoring is also ensured.
This course is dedicated to people with a medical or scientific training background who are interested in all aspects of this new discipline: medical and public health students, PhD students (e.g., immunology, microbiology), scientists, physicians, pharmacists, veterinarians and other health professionals.
The program of the course organized the previous year can be downloaded to get detailed information on the general frame of the course; some topics and practical works may change each year, without altering the general aims and means of the course.
