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.
Full or partial attendance at certain courses held at the Institut Pasteur Teaching Center can count as "doctoral school modules" for PhD students enrolled at partner universities.
Doctoral students at Parisian universities (Paris-Diderot, Paris-Descartes, Paris-Sud and Pierre et Marie Curie) wishing to attend courses at the Institut Pasteur should first contact the relevant directors at their doctoral school. Places are limited and applicants are assessed by the committee for each course.
For courses with no laboratory work involved, training for doctoral school students corresponds to the entire taught course, which generally lasts one or two weeks. For courses with laboratory work involved, training for doctoral school students only corresponds to the lectures for all or part of the particular course. Lectures for some courses can be grouped into several "modules".
Course dates and the part of the course concerned by a particular module (as applicable) are provided in the table below. On module completion a certificate is issued to those students who signed the attendance sheet.
For each course, detailed information about course organization can be found in the program of the previous year which you can download from the course page. Some lectures change every year although the objectives and facilities available for the course are the same from one year to the next.
