Parcours Chemistry for life sciences 2e année

Présentation et objectifs

In the 2nd year in Chemistry for life sciences, classes will focus on chemistry at the interface with biology and its applications, with, in particular, courses on bioorganic and bioinorganic chemistry. The teaching units in bioorganic chemistry focuses on the synthesis, engineering and modification of biomolecules (proteins, nucleic acids and sugars) in order to obtain therapeutic, diagnostic or targeting tools. As for the UE in Bioinorganic chemistry, its aim is to understand the role of metals in living systems in order to best imitate the way in which they work and anticipate how they interact with biomolecules. A course of biology specific to the 2nd year's master CLS program raises students’ awareness about the different innovative biological targets which have significant therapeutic and diagnostic interest. This cross-disciplinary specialization will broaden the students scientific culture at the chemistry-biology interface and enable a better understanding of the biological mechanisms and pathways that can be targeted. In parallel, students must also take a course of either biology or chemistry, within those proposed among the other programs of the chemistry or biology degree, to personalize their own formation. 

This program provides students with the skills and knowledge of research issues in the chemistry for life sciences field, in order to be able to successfully carry out research projects at this interface (by continuing in doctoral education).



Dimension internationale :

Formation tournée vers l’international

Students have the possibility to follow courses all taught in English in semester 9 (30 ECTS) as well as in the 1str year (60 ECTS). Finally, the internship at the end of the 2nd year is an opportunity for students to be immersed for six months in a research academic laboratory, in France or abroad, and to play an active role in a research project.
