In addition to the transmission of knowledge through and for research provided during the supervision of internships or doctoral students, the unit's teaching and research staff are heavily involved in initial training in both scientific and medical courses. More specifically, they are responsible for diplomas and teaching modules.


The Toulouse Graduate School of Cancer Aging and Rejuvenation (CARe) is a unique opportunity to promote one of the world highest quality education and research center in the shared fields of Cancer and Ageing. CARe is built on the outstanding activity of the TOUCAN LabEx, the WHO’s geriatric reference center (Gerontopole) and cancer hospital of Toulouse (IUCT) and on a strong network of international academic and industrial partnerships.

The main goal is to propose disruptive high-level education actions in the area of cancer, ageing, rejuvenation sciences and engineering in Toulouse through an international network. This new educational program, implemented in tight relation with research centers in Toulouse, aims at boosting scientific innovation from fundamental concepts to industrial and medical applications.

Le parcours Bioingénierie en M2 est une formation professionnalisante de l’UPS qui s’insère dans la mention du master Biotechnologie (BT) de l’Université Toulouse III. Afin d’avoir une approche globale du métier de cadre, l’accent est mis sur une bonne maîtrise des Sciences de l’Ingénieur (économie, gestion, management, marketing, communication, stratégie d’entreprise, législation et réglementation).

Cette formation propose à la fois une formation académique et une immersion en entreprise grâce à un stage de 6 mois en M2. Elle s’appuie sur un tissu d’entreprises et de laboratoires de recherche reconnus et répond à des besoins nouveaux en qualifications concernant des métiers comme ceux des biotechnologies, de l’environnement, du biomédical et de la sécurité et qualité des aliments. 

Une solide formation en sciences fondamentales biologiques, chimiques, statistiques et informatiques est un prérequis indispensable. Au terme de ce tronc commun, deux parcours sont proposés :

Santé : Bioingénérie Recherche et Application Biomédicale
Les sociétés de biotechnologie sont actuellement en plein développement avec des besoins de cadres ayant des compétences en Biologie Moléculaire et Cellulaire, en Génétique, Génomique et Protéomique, en Imagerie cellulaire, en Bioinformatique, en Biochimie et Chimie Analytique, en Physiologie, en Santé et développement durable, en Pharmacologie Fondamentale et Clinique en particulier pour le développement d’approches thérapeutiques innovantes. Cette formation pluridisciplinaire aborde ces différents domaines en faisant intervenir des enseignants-chercheurs, des chercheurs, des ingénieurs, des cliniciens, des juristes et vous donnant accès à des plateformes de haute technologie.
Aliment : Qualité et sécurité des aliments

Les industries alimentaires doivent répondre de plus en plus aux nouvelles contraintes de réglementation européenne d’environnement et de sécurité alimentaire. Cette formation s’inscrit dans une perspective de formation pluridisciplinaire permettant à l’issue de la formation d’occuper des fonctions de contrôle, de gestion ou d’élaboration de la qualité des produits frais ou transformés mais aussi permettant la mise en place d’une démarche qualité, de la sécurité des aliments.

from molecular to medicine” is one of the 12 degree-granting tracks of the Biology and Health Master, proposed in Toulouse III University

This training program is primarily research-oriented thanks to strong connections to a network of research laboratories mainly located in the Occitanie area, and dealing with a broad range of problematics in human health. Students have also the opportunity to carry out their five-month long internship in other biomedical research Institutes in France or Foreign countries.

The students, who want to apply to this high-level education program, must have already obtained a bachelor’s degree in life sciences or have successfully followed health training in medical, pharmaceutical, dental or veterinary schools.

Through interdisciplinary and integrated approaches, the three main objectives of the Master program are:

  1. To offer students the widest possible view of cellular, molecular and physiological mechanisms involved in chronic disorders associated with aging such as cardiovascular, metabolic, inflammatory or cancer diseases.
  2. To allow students to master the state-of-the-art technological tools and experimental approaches for chronic diseases modeling, diagnosis and treatments.

  3. To make students aware of the fundamental links between basic and clinical research as well as technological transfer.

The program thus provides training that develops a broad understanding of conceptual bases and emergent areas form basic sciences to translational and clinical research.

By developing critical analysis and creative skills that must be applied in the conception of research proposals, accessing and processing experimental data, and literature searches, this Master prepares students for careers in academic research in biomedical sciences. They may pursue their studies further with a PhD or directly work in research laboratories as scientific staff. It also prepares students to apply for careers in the industrial sector (biotechnology or pharmaceutical companies or clinical analysis laboratories). Graduates of the program have also the opportunity of applying for different professional positions in the healthcare system, such as hospitals or clinics.

The course of M2 “Pharmacological Innovations and Medication Professions” is part of the mention of master’s degree in Biology-Health, carried by the University of Toulouse III

The training aims to give students a global vision of pharmacology: molecular and cellular aspects, pharmacokinetics, development of human and veterinary drugs. Emphasis will be placed on research and identification of pharmacological targets and on the use for therapeutic purposes of knowledge of the molecular, cellular and physiological mechanisms involved. The fate of the compounds in the organism, the concepts and methods used in preclinical and clinical pharmacology will also be discussed as well as drug development. New concepts and strategies in development in the field of fundamental and / or applied pharmacology will be discussed.

Graduate students can consider integration into the higher education and research sectors (doctorate then research engineer, researcher or teacher-researcher) as well as industry (project or product manager, engineer, research associate). clinical research, pharmacokinetic analyst).
