Objectives of the IMCBio graduate school

The IMCBio graduate school aims to educate the leading researchers of tomorrow, who will share their scientific and soft skills to inspire others. Our ambition is to give the possibility to the new generation of students to build a unique expertise at the interfaces in biology. 

How? The IMCBio graduate school interconnects excellence research and education through specific actions at both Master and PhD levels.

4 Research Clusters (LabEx)

The IMCBio graduate school is built on 4 main research groups: the Research Clusters (former Laboratories of Excellence) federating 5 research Institutes. These groups share a common vision of the training management in basic and medical biology. This strategic grouping covers all areas of modern biology at level of genes, cells and organisms, from model systems to diseases. We offer a large set of  opportunities to join the world of molecular and cellular biology!

Building on top-level research, the IMCBio graduate school benefits also from state-of-the-art technological platforms shared between 5 research institutes. This exceptional set of facilities contribute further to the inspiring international environment to initiate and develop unique research projects.

Thanks to the creation of the « European Campus » in 2016, the University of Strasbourg offers an international environment of excellence. Administrative aspects of the cross-border mobilities are facilitated. Further, as students of the IMCBio graduate school, you can benefit from several opportunities to go abroad for internships or for specific PhD trainings. 


As the graduate school is linking research and education, the management relies on different boards, each having a dedicated mission.
