PhD in Biology

The field Biology of IP Paris doctoral School explores a wide range of modern biology topics, possibly in connection with industrial partners or start-ups.
PhD in Biology

Biology is a science in the midst of a revolution, driven by numerous conceptual and technological advances over the last twenty years (omics, genome editing, stem cells, etc.). The societal impact of these discoveries is immense, from medicine (personalized medicine, regenerative medicine) to the multiscale understanding of ecosystems

An essential feature of modern biology is the application of new technologies that draw heavily on the engineering sciences. As a result, biology is increasingly a "quantitative" science that relies heavily on interdisciplinarity. The stakes for health, food and the environment are high.

In addition to the academic excellence of the host laboratories, PhD students benefit from state-of-the-art infrastructures and platforms to support their work. Interdisciplinarity, at the heart of the Institut Polytechnique de Paris, is also a major asset for their success, as biology is closely linked to other disciplines such as chemistry, physics, optics, mechanics, computer science and applied mathematics.
