International Master in Neurodegenerative Diseases iMIND

Useful information

Deadline : 30/06/2020 12:00 am Applications: 27 May to 30 June 2020

Nowadays, the health challenges are tremendous and will continue to grow in the next years. Specifically, the aging of the population leads to the development of new illnesses such as neurodegenerative diseases and thus creates the need for new treatments and care that are designed for patients. To address this growing challenge, education and research programs must be adapted.

In this context, the Paris Brain Institute (ICM) and Sorbonne Universités (SU) are developing a new master program called International Master In Neurodegenerative Disease (iMIND). It aims to provide a high-quality Master degree training to address the challenges of neurodegenerative diseases through an innovative, international and interdisciplinary approach. The expertise and the notoriety of each partner, in neuroscience at large and in training, is a key to the creation of iMIND.

This Master 2 program  is offered by Europe’s most prestigious centers of research and teaching in neuroscience and Neurodegenerative diseases:

  • ICM chose to collaborate with Sorbonne Université and more specifically with the Biology Faculty to embed the program iMind into the already existing Master Integrative Biology and Physiology (BIP), one of the best neuroscience master of France.

Students will be rigorously selected on the basis of academic excellence and academic recommendation. The program is designed to allow students to design an individualised programme of study through taught modules and research projects in the neuroscience with particular emphasis on Neurodegenerative Diseases. Some of the courses will involve lecturers from ICM, Sorbonne Université and the international partners.
