iMOV International Master of Vision Sciences

Vision care is one of the highest in demand sectors in the medical industry with more than 50 millions patients in Europe and 700 millions in the world suffering from low vision, a number in constant increase due to ageing and diabetes.The multiplicity of diseases affecting vision is mirrored by the important variety of therapeutical avenues. This master aims at underlining the multidisciplinary nature of the treatments currently in development at the institute and in the world. In neurosciences, vision is by far the most studied sensory modality. It is the modality of choice for many behavioural tasks developed and yet it remains a very active field where molecular, cellular, network and higher functions are explored. Thanks to current advances, it is now possible to study these different hierarchical levels of organisation concomitantly, in transdiciplinary studies.

The iMOV programme puts an emphasis on current fondamental and clinical advances in the broad field of visual sciences and introduces students to the cutting-edge technologies behind the discoveries.


Programme structure

Developed with the world renown Vision Institute, the iMOV programme offers a full perspective of the multidisciplinary approaches used in vision sciences. iMOV mainly functions as a specialisation of the Master BIP - Neuroscience. Through its selective classes it propose to student in second year of master to focus on vision related areas of neurosciences. iMOV also functionS as a Dual Master with our partner university UNAM; it is therefore possible to apply to iMOV in the first or second year of Master (M.Sc).

The first year of the iMOV programme in Sorbonne University is the Master BIP's first year. Courses are taught entirely in French.
