Even if our ultimate aim is to improve the treatment and prevention of today's diseases and future diseases, to do so we first need to dissect how humans and other organisms, microbes in particular, function. This is precisely the Institut Pasteur’s strength — bringing together researchers from different disciplines in fundamental research, using unique technological facilities, to understand physiological and pathological processes taking place in living organisms. It is only by using such multidisciplinary and integrative approaches that we can ultimately improve 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.
