Can you describe the graduate course and the university degree in more detail?
PreciDIAB’s education-training program revolves around two initiatives:
1) The Graduate Program “Precision Health” that I coordinate offers a unique training in the search for excellence to train students in innovative concepts that will guide the health of tomorrow. It is open to biologists, physicians and pharmacists, as well as (bio) computer scientists and mathematicians of local, national and international origin, to train the next generation of research leaders for universities, industry and biotechnology. . The lessons are given in English.
This Graduate Program comprises a master’s degree in biology and health and a doctoral program. It is structured around interactive seminars on current cutting-edge technologies and approaches (eg: big data, OMICS, IA, innovative therapies, etc.). The applications are chosen from the key themes of the health sector of the University of Lille, which cover a whole range of chronic diseases. The seminars are given by renowned local, national and European experts in the field. Research training will take place in the internationally recognized laboratories of the University of Lille, in particular in the laboratories of PreciDIAB and EGID. All Graduate Program students will have the opportunity to undertake international mobility during their training.
With a view to preparing for professional integration into the business world, various initiatives aimed at raising awareness among Graduate Program students of the socio-economic world (innovation, creation of start-ups, management, intellectual property, etc. .) are implemented: interventions by members of the local entrepreneurial community (Cousin Biotech, Lattice Medical, Apteus, …) and international (Bayer, Sanofi, …) in seminars, METABOMIR industrial chair, connection with the University Diploma Health Bioentrepreneurship, industrial club of PreciDIAB …
Attractive doctoral scholarships are offered to students who are determined to continue their research training.
2) The second part of the education and training project of PreciDIAB is the creation of the Inter-University Diploma “Clinical Investigation in Precision Medicine” led by Pr D. Deplanque, a unique project in France. This IUD is intended for doctors, pharmacists, scientists and all healthcare professionals. The aim is to train experts in precision medicine clinical trials, investigators, clinical trial managers, people in charge of developing healthcare products in industry and evaluating healthcare products. Health in agencies, this training certifying GCP (Good Clinical Practices). The courses will be taught in English, largely in e-learning, with personalized follow-up and face-to-face seminars which may be supplemented by a practical laboratory internship. The speakers will come from the academic and industrial world.
These two complementary teaching components, in graduate training and lifelong training, offer an innovative and attractive program to train future players in the world of research and precision health around diabetes.
