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 Mériux
