PARIS, April 20, 2015 – The Institut Pasteur today hosted Drs. Dennis and Mireille Gillings for the ‘Pasteur Gillings Day,’ with a varied program of activities including scientific presentations and tours of the Pasteur Museum, the Global Health Center and other important facilities. A key element on the agenda was an update on the partnership between the Institut Pasteur’s US affiliate, the Pasteur Foundation, and the University of North Carolina (UNC) Gillings School of Public Health. A recent development here was establishment of the Dennis and Mireille Gillings Global Public Health Fellowships, designed to produce leaders who can successfully navigate the complexity of partnering money and medicine. Awarded annually, the fellowships will support post-doctoral scientists to join one of the Institut Pasteur’s 33 International Network sites based in 26 countries on 5 continents.
