Space is the place for Pasteur Institute

The Pasteur Institute has begun a five-year collaboration with the French space agency, the CNES, with the aim of boosting the use of space technology in biological research.

The agreement between the two organisations was signed by Christian Bréchot, director-general of the Pasteur Institute and Jean-Yves Le Gall, president of the CNES, on 13 May.

Full details have not been made public, but a statement form the Pasteur Institute said that the deal would focus primarily on boosting research in tele-epidemiology, in which satellites and other space technologies are used to investigate disease outbreaks.
