IMCBio Training Programs

Master level

During the lastest decades, research in molecular and cellular biology has undergone a rapid evolution. Integrative and large-scale studies can now be performed to decipher the complexity of biology. Based on a multidisciplinary campus at the leading edge of research in Life sciences, the IMCBio graduate school provides a unique environment for interdisciplinary training in Biology.

To provide to you, master student, a strong knowledge in modern biology, our unique IMCBio Master Program proposes specific training units in english to enhance the high-level training units proposed by the Life Sciences faculty from the University of Strasbourg.

By choosing this program you will get:

10 months of practical training in several laboratories
integrative teaching approaches
seminar series by international researchers

Those elements are essential now-a-days for a competitive career in biology research.

The major asset of the IMCBio program relies on its dynamic evolution and adaptation to the needs of the students, so do not hesitate anymore and join us!   

IMCBio associated Master specialties

To foster interdisciplinarity we work together with the following specialities from the Life Science Faculty:

Here’s some highlights of the program:

On the first day of the Master program, you will meet your IMCBio fellows and staff, learn about Strasbourg, and find out about the laboratories of excellence where you can do your rotations in a live event – the IMCBio Master Day.

In November, you’ll be able to participate in the IMCBio Master Symposium gathering more than 16 speakers in eight different disciplines! Here’s how it went last year.

We can’t emphasize enough: it’s central to IMCBio to promote interdisciplinarity. Therefore, in the first Master year, we promote that your research internships take place in different sites, either in Strasbourg (Research Clusters MitoCross, NetRNA and HepSYS) or in Illkirch (Research Cluster INRT). An internship in an industry setting or in another country is also possible.

For an overview of the research labs go HERE.

Please note that by following the Master program, entrance to the IMCBio PhD program is not automatic. IMCBio masters and external applicants have to apply to our PhD Call, to be selected on merit.
