Abstract

The Pasteur Institute of Iran was inaugurated on August 24, 1921 in Tehran. This new institution was established on the request of the Iranian government with the agreement and scientific support of the French authorities under the supervision of Professor Pierre Paul Emile Roux (1853 - 1933), the General Director of the Paris Pasteur Institute of the time. The Iranian institute was inaugurated 33 years after the original institute was established in Paris on November 14, 1888.In this article, we will review briefly the founding of the Pasteur Institute of Iran, its early French directors and the main services it rendered in the first four decades of its activity.
