MERS-CoV in South Korea: the Institut Pasteur is supporting the response
Press release |
Since May 20, 2015, South Korea has been facing an outbreak of MERS-CoV that began with a traveler who returned from the Middle East. To date (as of June 24, 2015), there have been 179 cases and 27 deaths in Korea.
Sequencing the genome of Ebola virus strains circulating in Guinea has allowed scientists at the Institut Pasteur in Dakar and in Paris, the CNRS and the University of Sydney to retrace the spread of the virus and monitor its evolution in the country where the outbreak started.
Scientists have successfully increased the infiltration of immune cells into tumors, thus inducing the immune system to block tumor growth. They show that, in combination with existing immunotherapies, this process efficiently destroys cancer cells.
The dynamics and infrastructure of research at the Institut Pasteur are geared towards providing research teams with the resources required for the realization of ambitious, innovative projects. Institut Pasteur's laboratories are composed of 130 research units and 14 technology platforms.
L’Institut Pasteur a entamé une transformation ambitieuse de l’organisation de sa recherche sous le signe de la transversalité, de l’interdisciplinarité et de la mutualisation des ressources. La création de centres de recherche transversaux est l’un des pivots de cette nouvelle organisation.
