Pasteur Courses: Vaccinology

This four-week course presents an integrated overview of vaccinology, from public health data and scientific results justifying the development of a vaccine up to its delivery to the populations in the context of industrialized and developing countries.


The Vaccinology course comprises three modules:

  • Module 1: Key steps from epidemiology to clinical trials

  • Module 2: Vaccine development against major infectious diseases and future challenges

  • Module 3: An international meeting organized at the Institut Pasteur on “Vaccine development: the pre- and post-COVID-19 era”

The course also includes methodology workshops based on a partnership with the HSeT Foundation which has developed an e-learning website dedicated to the course. Personalized tutoring is also ensured.


This course is dedicated to people with a medical or scientific training background who are interested in all aspects of this new discipline: medical and public health students, PhD students (e.g., immunology, microbiology), scientists, physicians, pharmacists, veterinarians and other health professionals.


The program of the course organized the previous year can be downloaded to get detailed information on its general content; some topics and practical works may change each year, without altering the general aims and means of the course.
