The heritage of Sanofi Pasteur dates back more than a century, and is closely linked with the achievements of Louis Pasteur, the Mérieux family, John FitzGerald and Richard Slee. Although each followed a unique path, they shared one goal – protecting people from infectious diseases.
Sanofi Pasteur is a truly global company based on innovation, scientific rigor and international synergies. They are proud of their rich heritage and continue to draw inspiration from the legacy of the pioneers who built their foundation.
