  • Experimental skills using cutting-edge techniques (six-month internship in France)
  • Expertise in experimental design, data analysis, critical thinking and scientific communication
  • Over 300 world-leading research laboratories covering a wide spectrum of research interests involved in this program
  • The establishment and growth of your professional research and medical network.

 

For WHOM?

A master’s degree for highly motivated students willing to pursue a career in both public and private sectors. An access to EUR G.E.N.E graduate school in Paris.
M2 promotions are around 100 students.

WHY?

Main career opportunities and employability
PhD, data analyst, in basic and applied research in the academic sector or R & D in the private sector in many fields (gene editing, biotechnology, oncology, genetic counselling, scientific communication, patenting.

HOW?

During this second year of the Master’s program (M2), students will acquire in-depth knowledge in different fields of Genetics. Core and a series of one-week optional modules covering a wide selection of topics, including human genetics, epigenetics, evolutionary genetics, developmental genetics, high-throughput data analysis, cancer biology, stem cells, neurodevelopment etc…

Students can choose seven module among a large collection of modules to create their own personalised program.Students can also take a range of advanced courses offered at the prestigious Pasteur Institute. All students attend a one-week international workshop with partner universities in Italy (Rome, Florence, Padua, Trieste, Milan), Greece (Athens) and Spain (Barcelona).

In total, 30 ECTS must be validated for the first semester

And after?
