Master Biochemistry (specialisation Functional and Structural Biochemistry)    Back

Claude Bernard University Lyon 1 Course Type: Master taught Start Date: September
Location: Lyon, France Duration: Full time - 2 Years Fees/total cost: EUR 510.00


Program Description:

The first year (M1) is common to all the students of the master degree in Biochemistry.

Two different specialities are available for the second year (M2):

  • The Research program "Structural and Functional Biochemistry" prepares students for doctoral studies (PhD programs)
  • The Professional program "Biochemical Engineering and Biotechnologies" is designed for students who choose to start their professional life at the end of the program and do not want to enter a PhD program

Program overview:

The program provides interdisciplinary research-based education in Biochemistry at the interface of Chemistry, Biology and Physics. The program includes advanced courses in molecular biology, genetic engineering and enzymology and fundamentals in structural biology. Experimental courses on genetics, bioinformatic, biochemical and biophysical techniques used for the characterization of biomolecules illustrate how they apply to contemporary problems in biological research. Examples of applications of Biochemistry in several fields (nanobiotechnologies, study of biological membranes, microbiology and signalling) are provided.
