From Charles de Gaulles Airport, you can go to Paris through:
Public transport (RATP) is usually very good in Paris and can get you pretty much everywhere: Downloadable Map. Metro are mostly to travel within Paris and RER, faster trains can get you to the suburban, including Versailles (~ 1h).
The station to get to the meeting is "Pasteur" (south west) and is deserved by both line 6 and 12.
If you want more precise / up-to-date itineraries than google map, you can use the [RATP site https://www.ratp.fr/en/itineraires].
Official Paris Taxi are easily recognizable thanks to their sign, a green light indicating they are available and will stop if you call them.
Uber is available in Paris but not Lyft.
Paris also has a number of biking stations called velib'.
The Institut Pasteur is very close to the "Quartier Latin", a very lively part of Paris which concentrate most universities and engineering schools. The rue Mouffetard and the Place de la Contrescarpe are typical of a Paris student life and hold many restaurants.
This article gives some ideas of what can be seen in the area. In 25mn walk you can get to the Gardens of Luxembourg, 35mn will get you to the medieval museum of Cluny, 45mn to the island of the city with Notre Dame cathedral and the Sainte Chapelle (many classical concerts are usually available). If you prefer to use public transportation, taking the line 12 from Pasteur and line 4 from Montparnasse will get you to Saint Michel Notre Dame in 20mn.
Walking along the Seine river around that area and by a sunny day is always enjoyable. Along the way, it's easy to find the Louvres, the City town hall (Hotel de Ville), the Orsay museum and the Pont des arts which leads to the Institut de France where the French Academy of Science is.
