The specialization is strongly related to biochemistry, genetics and immunology and uses their respective technologies. Student acquire an overall vision of the fundamental mechanisms of living things and a solid base, both theoretical and practical, in cellular biology (structural and functional organization of cells, intercellular traffic, regulation and deregulation of the cellular cycle, communication and signaling mechanisms, cellular imaging techniques), in developmental biology(molecular and cellular mechanisms of embryonic development, development -ageing-carcinogenesis, environmental effects on development), and in stem cell biology (embryonic and adult stem cells, niche concepts, cancerous stem cells and regenerative medicine, ethical and legal issues). The specialization also offers a specific training course in relation to biotechnology companies (Research and Development in Biotechnology) including several teaching programs necessary for employment in a company (knowledge of company professions, “people” training and technological training).
Two international courses exist in addition to the main courses. They include a minimum of six months study abroad in one of the European partner universities.
As modern biology necessarily integrates molecular mechanisms at the level of the cell and the organism, it relies heavily on the other basic disciplines. On to the bachelor’s level base, these notions are acquired or developed by the choice of M1 papers, which will guide students towards the M2 courses offered. The teaching program for the “research” courses is provided in collaboration with Parisian institutes (Institut Curie, Institut Pasteur, Ecole Normale Supérieure de Paris, Institut de Biologie Physico-Chimique, Institut du Fer-à-Moulin, Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle). The vocational course “Research and Development in Biotechnology” is run in association with the IPROB (Institut de Professionnalisation en Biotechnologies), which is allied with 270 businesses involved in biotechnology.
