About

The research carried out in the Microbiology Department focuses on various microorganisms (bacteria and archaea) and their viruses as model systems to characterize, at molecular level, functions enabling them to interact with their environment and, in some cases, cause disease.

The Microbiology Department includes 14 entities distributed in 7 buildings located on both sides of the Institut Pasteur campus: 9 research units, 2 G5 groups, 2 laboratories and 2 collections. 3 entities also host (or are associated to) a  National Reference Center and 2 are WHO Collaborating Centers.

An important asset of the Department of Microbiology lies in its wide range of expertise and the diversity of its experimental approaches to develop fundamental research and investigate the mechanisms of bacterial pathogenicity. These studies  improve our understanding of bacterial and archea’s lifestyle and contribute to new therapies or new diagnostic tools for treating bacterial infections. They also create opportunities for national and international interactions via the establishment of productive scientific collaborations.
