About Cancer Biology, Master - at University of Bordeaux

This program is one of the four degree-granting tracks of the Biology and Health Master. The training program is primarily research-oriented with an emphasis on interdisciplinary approaches to the study of cancer.

The program includes a two-month research internship during the first year and a five-month research internship in laboratories during the second year. Students learn about the fundamental bases and emergent areas in the field of cancer, from basic cell and molecular biology of cancer to translational and clinical research. They benefit from open access to new technological tools, and a diagnostic and therapeutic teaching method.

The program covers the basic molecular and cellular mechanisms driving oncogenesis, the complex interacting cellular and molecular networks with the tumor microenvironment dictating cancer development and metastatic dissemination, the clinical aspects of cancer pathology and therapeutic possibilities. The development of critical analysis and creative skills that must be applied in the conception of new research proposals, accessing and processing experimental data, and literature searches are also important components of the program.
