At the service of research and public health, the Institut Pasteur de Lille is a private non-profit foundation whose mission is to contribute to the prevention and treatment of diseases, through research, training and public health actions.

Here research and prevention have always been closely linked
Created at the initiative of the city of Lille with a public subscription to fight diphtheria, the Institut Pasteur de Lille soon oriented its work successfully on prevention and research on tuberculosis, setting up in 1901 the dispensary where the BCG (Bacillus Calmette-Guérin) was developed in 1921.

Internationally recognized, its medical teams conduct research on today’s major diseases: cancers ; diabetes ; obesity ; neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer 's; infectious diseases, such as tuberculosis ; and parasitic diseases such as malaria.

The Institut Pasteur de Lille is also recognized for its expertise in safety and food chemistry, microbiological safety, water and environment, hospital and industrial hygiene.

In addition to research activities, the Institut Pasteur de Lille is a training centre, an international vaccination centre approved by the World Health Organization and an valuable actor of the regional public health: a reference on all issues of nutrition and the largest health examination centre North of Paris.
The Institute also offers health workshops on nutrition, memory loss, addiction or physical activity.
