Master in Biology

Pro2Bio 2nd year

Presentation and goals

The “Pro2Bio” master 2 program, second year of the master’s degree in Biology, gives students with an 1st year in the fields of immunology, microbiology and infectious diseases (IMID) the chance to supplement their basic scientific knowledge and acquire the expertise and skills required to work as a research and development design engineer in biotechnology companies. The initial academic and professional training is rounded off with a mandatory extended internship. In the IMID (Immunology, microbiology and infectious diseases) stream, the Pro2Bio program involves modules (UEs) with a highly scientific focus and professional UEs (Project Management, Business ecosystem (strategy, policy and marketing for innovative companies) and Introduction to the professional world). The extended internship enables students to gain awareness of research and development within businesses and sectors related to biotechnology (Start-up, SME, large businesses) and of the target objectives of applied research, its economic constraints and deadlines.

The main professional objectives of the Pro2Bio program are to train professionals capable of developing and implementing development strategies for projects, products and services related to the biotechnology sector.
