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 five-week intensive laboratory and lecture course covers the main cutting-edge topics in neuroscience research.
This course offers a full training program for advanced graduate and PhD students, as well as post-graduate neurobiologists and medical doctors working in neurosciences.
Lectures given by distinguished international speakers present new data and ideas on molecular and cellular aspects of the nervous system development, its plasticity and its diseases.
Practical courses present various animal models (mouse, chick, frog) commonly used in neuroscience research, giving students the opportunity to understand the pros and cons of each technique and to expand their practical skills in carrying out experiments on cell biology, behavioral studies, axonal growth and labeling, drug stereotaxic injection, neuro-anatomy and gene expression analyses using histochemical techniques.
The program of the course organized the previous year can be downloaded to get detailed information on the general content of the course; some topics and practical works may change each year, without altering the general aims and means of the course.
