The Institut Pasteur expresses its deep sadness after the crash of the MH17 flight
The Institut Pasteur, all the scientists and administrative staff, wish to express their deep sadness after the crash of the MH17 flight. This tragedy is the result of stupidity and barbary. We think of all those people who died so tragically and their families. Also, we will remember all our colleagues who have dedicated their lives to the fight against HIV. We know how this will affect the international community and the international societies working on this major challenge for public health. In particular, we will remember Joep Lange and we are aware of the importance of his contribution. We also wish to express our support to his family and friends.
The commitment of the Institut Pasteur to contribute to the fight against HIV and AIDS can only be reinforced by such a tragedy.

The loss of François Jacob, a prominent name in molecular biology
A former member of the French Second Armored Division and Companion of the Liberation, François Jacob risked his life to defend the fundamental values of democracy and freedom. He was a brilliant scientist who spent his entire career at the Institut Pasteur and who inspired many researchers who followed in his tracks. François Jacob never missed an opportunity to demonstrate his commitment to the Institut Pasteur. On November 14, 2012, alongside the President of the Republic, he was delighted to be able to inaugurate the new building that bears his name. The obituary below was written by Michel Morange, a former pupil of François Jacob who works as a biologist and science historian.
