Master of Biology and Health Science (2nd year)

The Master of Biology and Health Science (MBHS) degree program is designed for scientific and medical students interested in graduate-level preparation for careers in biology, medicine and related health sciences. Many of our MBHS students are planning to pursue advanced graduate work (PhD), or a career in medicine (staff in public hospital and university), or a position in industry or public health.

The University of Lille is accredited to deliver the master's degree. The teaching teams of both university sites are involved in training, as well as many French national research institutions senior scientists who are affiliated to the Biology and Health Science graduate school (EDBSL).

The courses take place during the first term (from early September to mid January). The second term is completely devoted to the research project. The program culminates with the writing of a thesis based on the research project.
Research teams (update 16/3/15)

There is great flexibility in the program; a student’s coursework is based on a core set of basic science course requirements and a number of electives whose selection depends upon a student’s background and career aspirations. Students have to choose one option within six:

- Structural and dynamical analysis of biological processes
- Neurosciences
- Diabetes, metabolic and cardio-vascular diseases
- Biological and clinical oncology
- Methodology in epidemiology and in evaluation of health products
- Immunity, inflammation and infection
