Since its creation in 1887, the Institut Pasteur has become famous throughout the world as a symbol of science and French culture. For 120 years, this foundation has been contributing to the prevention and treatment of infectious diseases through research, teaching and public health initiatives.
Across the globe, thousands of researchers who have been trained or are working at Institut Pasteur share the values which form the very core of the Pasteurian community: an original scientific approach, an ongoing preoccupation with applying research to public health needs, professional ethics, a desire to care for people regardless of their backgrounds or nationality, and an outward-looking attitude to share knowledge and expertise with the international community. These guiding principles make the Institut Pasteur a unique institution which values exchanges and partnerships.
