Institut Pasteur de São Paulo
The Institut Pasteur de São Paulo carries out studies especially focused on emerging and neglected infectious diseases that are transmitted by pathogens that cause complex immune responses, produce nervous system disorders, and impact human and animal public health.
The institute works as an Emergency Cell and its main objective is to curb epidemics of those diseases by developing preventive, diagnostic/prognostic, and therapeutic methods.
Located in the Inova USP Research and Innovation Center, University of São Paulo, in Brazil, in a 1,700 m² area, the Platform consists of 17 laboratories, four of which are biosecurity level 3 (NB3) – comparable to the European standard.
The researchers involved with the Institut Pasteur de São Paulo share their areas of expertise, infrastructure, and cutting-edge equipment. This approach goal is to strengthen the development of joint initiatives with a view to discovering new products and processes, as well as to transferring and applying those innovations.
The institute is the result of a tripartite agreement between the Pasteur Institute, the University of São Paulo (USP), and the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (Fiocruz). The Institut Pasteur de São Paulo is currently an associated member of the Pasteur Network.
