Avenue Louis Pasteur

Hours: 

always open

The avenue is named for the French doctor, famous for his discovery of germs and the process of pasteurization. Prior to pasteurization in the 1920s, young children were disproportionally harmed by raw milk: its widespread pasteurization was a great public health breakthrough and was pioneered at nearby Boston Children's Hospital.  This quarter mile long formal boulevard connects the Harvard Medical Quad to the Emerald Necklace.  Educational institutions and research buildings line the avenue on all sides including Emmanuel College, Simmons College, Boston Latin School,  Brigham and Women's, and Harvard research spaces.
