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.
The role of the Legal Department is to protect the interests and to secure the rights of Institut Pasteur, notably in the fields of life sciences, intellectual property and new technologies, and in corporate and insurance matters.
Organized by areas of expertise, the Department is responsible for all legal matters with the exception of human resources. It provides legal support to scientists, to administrative departments and to the Institut Pasteur International Network.
The Department ensures legal security while respecting Institut Pasteur values and general policy, by:
a contractual policy tailored to the interests at stake,
oversight of corporate governance in accordance with the rules applicable to foundations, in general, and those that are specific to the Pasteur Institute.
a strict trademark policy,
a flexible and adjustable insurance policy.
The Legal Affairs Department is also charged with monitoring regulatory developments and ensuring that all Institut Pasteur practices meet the applicable compliance requirements.
The Legal Affairs Department has been led by Marie Glomet since September 2004.
