Exerpt: Named after renowned chemist and microbiologist, Louis Pasteur, how does the Institut Pasteur support the advancement of science, medicine and public health?
Although there are many high-quality research institutes worldwide, the Institute Pasteur has three unique differentiating qualities. The first is its name; people around the globe know of Louis Pasteur and his legacy. There is therefore an expectation of excellence associated with our work – and, to date, 10 of the Institut’s scientists have been awarded the Nobel Prize.
