PhD in Biology & Chemistry


Biology is in the midst of a great revolution, driven by a number of key technological and conceptual breakthroughs over the past twenty years (‘omics’, genome editing, stem cells…). Social impact of these discoveries is huge, ranging from personalized and regenerative medicine, to multi-scale understanding of ecosystems.

Chemistry is essential in the fields of health, energy, depollution or new materials to address current and future social and environmental challenges. The synthesis of new chemical compounds, the study of their properties, and the comprehensive understanding of the physicochemical phenomenons implied is central to those issues.

The « Biology / Chemistry » domain of IP Paris doctoral School explores a wide range of modern biology and chemistry topics, possibly in connection with industrial partners or start-ups. In addition to academic excellence of host labs, PhD candidates benefit from state-of-the-art infrastructure and facilities to support their research. Interdisciplinary approaches, which are at the core of IP Paris, are a major asset towards success, biology and chemistry being both in strong interaction with other fields like physics, optics, mechanics, informatics or applied math.
