Editor

L'Institut Pasteur est une fondation française privée à but non lucratif, sise à Paris, qui se consacre à l'étude de la biologie, des micro-organismes, des maladies et des vaccins.

Créé en 1888 grâce à une souscription publique internationale, il est ainsi nommé d'après Louis Pasteur1, son fondateur et premier directeur qui, en 1885, a mis au point le premier vaccin contre la rage.

Depuis plus d’un siècle, l’Institut Pasteur est à la pointe de la lutte contre les maladies infectieuses. Cette organisation internationale de recherche a été la première à isoler en 1983 le virus de l'immunodéficience humaine (VIH), virus qui provoque le syndrome d'immunodéficience acquise (SIDA). Au fil des années, il a été à l'origine de découvertes révolutionnaires qui ont permis à la médecine de contrôler des maladies virulentes, telles que la diphtérie, le tétanos, la tuberculose, la poliomyélite, la grippe, la fièvre jaune, la peste épidémique, l'hépatite B, le SIDA.
