Objectifs pédagogiques de la formation

The objective of this pluridisciplinary master is to train future managers in the pharmaceutical field with a versatile, scientific and technical expertise, and an opening-up to business life or research laboratories.

The M1 is intended to provide international students with basic and advanced knowledge in research and development of innovative medicines, drawing on the expertise of University Paris-Saclay's researchers on the following topics :

1- Basic and advanced knowledge of the current diseases and the dysregulation of major functions
2- Pharmacist’s toolbox: chemistry, biotechnology, formulation, production
3- The pharmaco-toxicological and analytical methods with extension to environmental impacts in order to implement diagnosis, treatment and prevention

In M2 the students may choose to specialize in two of these three topics.
