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.
In partnership with universities in Greater Paris and the CNAM, a number of courses are accredited for 2nd year Masters (M2) university programs and can count towards university diplomas (DU) or doctoral school modules.
Students who pass the examinations on course completion are awarded a Diploma by the Institut Pasteur which is specific to each course. Numerous courses count as teaching units (credits) for 2nd year Masters programs at Paris-Descartes, Paris-Diderot, Paris-Sud, and Pierre et Marie Curie universities and can be attended as doctoral school modules by doctoral students enrolled in these universities.
Most courses lasting over 2 weeks can be accredited as University Diplomas (DU) for Paris-Diderot and Pierre et Marie Curie universities. Students interested in this system should enroll with the university of their choice and pay the enrollment fees directly to the university (≈ EUR 250).
