IPK is now accepting contributions on the Happy Log donation page! Every green bean you contribute goes towards supporting infectious disease research activities as well as various educational outreach programs.

Should you have any additional questions regarding financial support of IPK’s research programs, please contact Communication & Public Relation.

IPK is an international research institute focused on addressing global health issues with a combination of cutting edge approaches in order to understand disease mechanisms and develop new treatments. By promoting multi-disciplinary projects, IPK is at the forefront of drug discovery and an economic growth engine that contributes to Korea’s scientific intellectual and technical resources.

IPK has four core missions of public interest:

1) Research - combining front line biology, IT, and chemistry, with innovative cell-based drug discovery platforms that identify novel molecular targets for potential new therapies to treat diseases

2) Education - offering a wide range of programming to nurture the development of the next generation of scientists and health professionals

3) Public Health - working in collaboration with national and international health authorities

4) Translation of biomedical discoveries – improving health via technology transfer and industrial partnerships.

IPK is a member of the Institut Pasteur International Network (Network). As a hub intuition, IPK plays a key role in the Network, serving as a bridge between Korea and global bio-pharma science, expanding Korea’s R&D base collaborative research projects with global alliances

With world-class drug discovery capabilities and a talented team drawn from all over the world, IPK scientists aim to uncover various physiological and pathological processes to devise new strategies for diagnosing, preventing and treating disease. IPK currently focuses on global infectious diseases that represent today’s health challenges such as tuberculosis, antibiotic resistance, hepatitis, influenza, cancer, dengue and neglected diseases, as well as preparing for emerging diseases that may impact future health needs.

IPK stands ready to work in collaboration with national and international health authorities such as the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (KCDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), providing expertise in infectious diseases to uncover the basic biology of disease and discover effective countermeasures. In 2015, when an outbreak of MERS occurred in Korea, IPK brought its expertise in infectious diseases to discover effective countermeasures against the causative virus. With an agreement with the Korean government, IPK uses screening technologies in its high security laboratories to test existing therapeutic molecules already approved by health authorities.
