The Institut Pasteur is an internationally renowned center for biomedical research that stands out in many disciplines. By deciphering the fundamental mechanisms of living organisms, its researchers contribute to the advancement of knowledge that leads to cutting-edge medical applications, ultimately improving public health.
of the Institut Pasteur
Since the creation of the Institut Pasteur 130 years ago, our objective has been to better treat and prevent diseases, both current and future. Today, emerging viruses and microbes, antibiotic-resistant bacteria, neurodegenerative diseases and cancers represent some of our priority challenges. Our goal is also to better understand the functioning of our organism and the microbes that surround us. The strength of the Institut Pasteur and its international network is to bring together researchers from many disciplines in fundamental and translational research, with state-of-the-art technological facilities, in order to decipher the fundamental mechanisms of the living world. We hope that these multidisciplinary and integrative approaches will contribute to improving human health.
2014 saw the creation of 4 inter-disciplinary research centers which all help to stimulate
collaborations and synergy between initiatives within the campus and international network.
