The Master’s in Biomedical Sciences provides advanced training in the medical field, based on solid scientific foundations and practical work.
Students on this course acquire in-depth knowledge in the fields of biochemistry, molecular biology, toxicology and pharmacology.
We propose a specialisation with four possible orientations, developed and supported by the scientific works of our research laboratories. These four orientations are among the most promising sectors of biomedical science research for patients.

At the end of the Master’s, students will be able to:
- Discover the causes of diseases
- Develop tools needed for diagnosis
- Highlight new targets for drugs
- Study the effectiveness of drugs through experimental disease models.
Program and structure
During the first year of the Master’s, students take advanced courses in the field of biomedical sciences, such as structural and functional proteomics, gene therapy, and clinical immunology.
They can focus on specific disciplines, such as toxicology, neuroscience, oncology, and molecular imaging.
The dissertation is carried out over the two years of the Master’s, between the beginning of the second term of the first year and the end of the first term of the second year.
Over these two years, students also take specialised courses in animal testing which end with an assessment which, if passed, results in a certificate which is required for all laboratory work involving animals.
At the end of the second year, students have the opportunity to carry out a long-term placement, either abroad or in the private sector, which can then lead to a PhD or simply allows students to get their foot in door and experience what the industry has to offer.
The programme description defines the expected learning outcomes at the end of the cycle (Bachelor's, Master's, etc.). The programme description defines the expected learning outcomes, i.e. what the student should know, understand and be able to achieve at the end of a learning activity, a teaching unit or a study cycle (Bachelor's, Master's, etc.). Learning outcomes are defined in terms of knowledge, expertise and soft skills.
At the end of the Master's, students will be able to:
- Apply their acquired scientific skills
- Apply their acquired professional integration skills.
