The institute was founded by Doctor Victor Babes in 1887, and it is the oldest medical scientific institute in the country. Its organization followed the example of Pasteur Institute in Paris. Initially, it was hosted by the old Brancoveanu Palace on Calea Victoriei, but it was endowed with the actual building in 1899. Apart from laboratories, it hosts a museum, a library and three workshops.

Address: On Dambovita Quay - 99-101 Splaiul Independentei
