Presentation - Doctoral School “Life Science Complexity”- ED515

Description illustration de l'article  Presentation of the Doctoral School

The "Life Science Complexity" (ED 515) PhD school (ED), co-accredited by Pierre and Marie Curie University (UPMC) and the Ecole Normale Supérieure Ulm, was created on 1 January 2009 following the reorganisation of the training courses offered by Paris-Diderot University and UPMC. It is based on approximately 160 host teams grouping together over 300 senior researchers (HDR). The teams are located at several sites. The main ones are the Jussieu campus, the Montagne Sainte-Geneviève site (the ENS, Curie Institute and IBPC), the Pasteur Institute, Pitié-Salpétrière, the “Fer à Moulin” Institute and the UPMC marine biology stations. The ED's broad thematic outline covers the genomic, cellular biology, developmental biology and microbiology. Its teams use a very wide variety of model systems and a large share of the projects fit in with an "integrative" approach combining many different levels of analysis. Thus, the ED fosters cross-disciplinary relations and the possibility of interface between various research clusters in the Paris region.

The doctoral school being very attached to the quality of the supervision, a maximum of 3 PhD candidates per supervisor (HDR) is authorized.
