Together, we have just lived through some difficult years, which have confronted us with new public health challenges. At the dawn of this new year, which marks the 125th anniversary of Institut Mérieux, we have only one wish: to pursue, with you, our family and entrepreneurial commitment to the global fight against infectious diseases. Faced with viruses that know no borders, we must fight and take risks, with a necessarily global and long-term vision. So that in 2022 and for the years to come, our wishes for better health become reality.
MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN
“ The threat of infectious disease is always present,
as the emergence of new epidemics reminds us.
However, we are fortunate that unprecedented scientific and technological
breakthroughs are making it possible to provide new medical solutions.
The science and the public health challenges are both extremely complex, requiring a global approach to health care: an interdisciplinary, network-based approach, without borders of any kind, that is patient-centered and guarantees the same level of care to all patients regardless of their country of origin.
This is Institut Mérieux’s vision of health care, which inspires all of our activities
and our commitment to pushing the boundaries of biology. ”
Alain Mérieux, Chairman
Institut Mérieux is contributing its experience in industrial biology to improve medicine and public health across the globe.
VISION AND COMMITMENTS
As a perfect blend of tradition and innovation, Institut Mérieux works ceaselessly to push the boundaries of biology to improve the quality of patient care and consumer health…
