Molecular, Integrative and Cellular Biology Doctoral School - Lyon (France)

The Molecular, Integrative and Cellular Biology Doctoral School (ED BMIC) of Lyon covers a vast field of study within the biological sciences. The school gathers together some one hundred research teams working for a better understanding of biological processes, from the regulation of gene expression to an integrative vision of biological phenomena.

ED BMIC stands out for seeking to integrate biological mechanisms into functional issues and to compare as much as possible normal and pathological situations. Furthermore, thanks to the many HDRs (accredited research directors) working in its laboratories, the doctoral school guarantees quality supervision and training to each of its PhD students.

The Molecular, Integrative and Cellular Biology Doctoral School is one of 4 biology doctoral schools among the 17 doctoral schools at the Université de Lyon. ED BMIC benefits from the scientific resources and networks of the Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1, to which it is attached, as well as of ENS Lyon, associated with the doctoral school project.

The doctoral school ED BMIC is home to :

  • 300 PhD students
  • Over 100 research teams
  • 18 research units
  • 260 HDRs (accredited research directors)
  • 60 theses defended each year

ED BMIC : Teams / Team Leaders

  • Team Pluripotent stem cells in Mammals : Savatier

The Neurosciences and Cognition Doctoral School - Lyon (France)

The Neurosciences and Cognition Doctoral School (ED 476 – NSCo) is one of only two doctoral schools in France solely dedicated to studying the brain and its functions. It gathers together the scientific community of Lyon specialized in the neurosciences, with a particular focus on the integrative and cognitive neurosciences. Its objective is to offer PhD students top-quality training by and for research and to assist them in best preparing their professional future..

Relying on the activities of 24 research teams (most of which are accredited by CNRS and INSERM), the Neurosciences and Cognition Doctoral School boasts a particularly rich, research-friendly environment focusing its research on normal brain functions, as well as disorders. The latter may result from brain damage (CVA, accidents, etc.), neurological disorders (epilepsy, chronic pain, etc.), neurodegenerative disorders (for example, Parkinson's disease) and psychiatric disorders (for example, schizophrenia).

ED NSCo is one of the 17 doctoral schools of the Université de Lyon. It also benefits from the scientific resources and networks of the Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1 and the Université Lumière Lyon 2 to which it is attached, as well as its partnership with the CORTEX LabEx (Laboratory of Excellence). This network allows the school to ensure the training of its PhD students in the very best conditions.

The doctoral school ED 476 - NSCo is home to :

  • 140 PhD students
  • 140 accredited research directors
  • 35 theses defended each year, on average
  • 7 laboratories
  • 24 host research teams
  • Over 500 persons active in the field of neuroscience research within the Lyon – Saint-Etienne area

ED 476 - NSCo : Teams / Team Leaders

  • Team Cortical architecture, coding and perception : Knoblauch, Kennedy    
  • Team Neurobiology of executive fonctions : Procyk    
  • Team Chronobiology and affective disorders : Haddjeri, Cooper    
  • Team Human and Robot Cognitive Systems : Dominey
