Institut Pasteur Korea
Institut Pasteur Korea is conceptualized around the virtual “genome to drugs” pipeline. The goal of IP-Korea is to actively implement post-genomic approaches into accelerated drug discovery. Accordingly, IP-Korea is situated at the very fault line between basic research and application.
The positioning of our institute is in good accordance with the Pasteurian tradition and mission. During its long history Institut Pasteur in Paris has been able to combine scientific achievements with their application in public health. This has improved the lives of millions of patients over the last 130 years, and has earned Institut Pasteur 10 Nobel prizes.
To extend and build on these achievements, IP-Korea is the first to develop a technology-based approach to therapeutic development in the areas of infectious and chronic diseases.
Strategically it combines its strength in biomedical research with Korean expertise in Information and Chemical technologies.
The result is the consequent implementation of visualization and imaging technology in analyzing disease models, accelerating both drug discovery and basic research.
