Inaugurated in 1888 by Louis Pasteur and located in the heart of Paris, the Institut Pasteur is one of the world's leading biomedical research organizations. With more than 130 laboratories and 2,500 people on campus, it is a vibrant, international community devoted to basic scientific research primarily in the area of infectious disease. During the internships, interns will carry out research supervised by a lab mentor. Applicants should be eager to immerse in a different culture, and self-sufficient enough to arrange travel and secure housing in Paris. Depending on availability, affordable housing in a residence on campus may be possible.
