The Graduat School offers 2 Summer schools (one for each laboratories of excellence).

The Graduate School includes a Master of Biology and Health (M1 and M2) and a PhD English-language program, which is open to the whole scientific community including Postdoctoral fellowships, engineers, teachers and researchers. It gathers innovative practical courses on current cutting-edge technologies and approaches (e.g. next generation sequencing, systems biology and integrated bio-informatics), and interdisciplinary modules including human, economic and social science taught by local, national and European world-class experts in the field. All the students will achieve a mandatory mobility during their training in the international partners of the Graduate School. The Graduate School has partnered with socio-economic institutions such as Sanofi and Apteus.
