PARIS—The 117-year-old Pasteur Institute has never had a woman president. But that could change this fall after the board of directors announced two finalists to succeed Philippe Kourilsky. One is Alice Dautry-Varsat, a chlamydia researcher who heads Pasteur's Biology of Cell Interactions Unit. The other candidate is Pierre Legrain, a former Pasteur scientist who in 1997 co-founded Hybrigenics, a Paris-based biotech. A decision is expected during the board's 2 September meeting.
