The Faculty of Medicine teaches the 3 cycles of medical studies: from PASS (integrated into the faculty) to the 3rd cycle including DES, DESC, DU and DIU. The lessons are given mainly on two sites: Pitié-Salpêtrière and Saint-Antoine. The faculty also provides paramedical education: speech therapy, psychomotricity and orthoptics. The Saint-Antoine site includes a midwifery school.

From molecules and materials to physico-chemical properties

Covering all major fields of chemistry, our research projects range from fundamental studies to applications aimed at addressing societal issues. The systems developed or studied concern the fields of health, the environment, energy and nanotechnology.

Our research activities in chemistry maintain strong links with the other disciplinary fields developed in our insitution, such as physics, mathematics, biology and medicine, contributing to cross-sector approaches aimed at addressing scientific, technological and societal changes.

From interactions at different scales in matter to the vast interstellar environment, the development of modern methods of synthesis allowed the development of original research objects at the crossroads of several discipline. These approaches to chemistry are respectful of the environment. They are based on theoretical modelling and involve the development of new physico-chemical characterisation methods (spectroscopic or electrochemical for example).

Ou research units investigate a large number of subjects. They are supported by a network of experimental, unique and inovative resources at the forefront of technological innovation, thus enabling the extraction of useful information from ever more complex systems.
