Institut Pasteur Korea
The Institut Pasteur Korea (IPK) was established in April 2004 in collaboration with Institut Pasteur in Paris and the Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST), with support from the Ministry of Science and ICT (MSIT). The IPK is also supported by the Gyeonggi Provincial government that has also been a great supporter since its foundation with a previous 10-year of block funding, free use of Gyeonggi Public Property for IPK premises amongst other subsidies.
The Institute is a private, non-profit foundation with four core missions of public interest:
- Public Health.
- Translation of biomedical discoveries to improve health via technology transfer and industrial partnerships.
The IPK is an international research institute focused on addressing global health issues with a combination of cutting edge approaches in order to understand disease mechanisms and develop new treatments.
By promoting multi-disciplinary projects, the IPK is at the forefront of drug discovery and contributes to Korea’s future scientific resources through research, education and technological innovation.
