Physiology and physiopathology specialization

This is a specialization of the master's degree in Integrative Biology and Physiology.

This specialization aims to give students a precise understanding of modern animal physiology and of the physiopathological mechanisms that lead to disease. It leads to biomedical research and associated professions. During the second semester, students focus on the major functions necessary for the homeostasis of the internal environment. In 2nd year (M2), students build on this base to understand the molecular and cellular origin of the pathologies covered in the specialization, and the current and prospective therapeutic means of combating these pathologies.

Career opportunities

The purpose of this master reference is to train scientists for research and development in the public service as well as in private companies. Following a research master is strongly advised to prepare a PhD to be hired to run as a researcher, scholar, engineer in public service (CNRS, INSERM, CEA, INRA, Universities etc ...) or comparable positions in private companies.
