A path to excellence
for Master and PhD students

Scientific context

Scientific and research context

For a few years now we have been seeing a veritable revolution in concepts and technologies, with the advent of mass data and artificial intelligence, innovations in imaging, the modelling of biological systems, etc...

These technological developments have led to changes in the concepts and paradigms central to all dimensions of research in biology and healthcare:

  •     fundamental research (shedding light on the physio-pathological mechanisms of disease)
  •     clinical research (establishing, managing and using large cohorts)
  •     developing innovative therapies (drugs and medical devices)
  •     patient care
  •     public health policies and the economics of healthcare
  •     ethical questions

Joining the Precision Health Graduate Programme helps the students to get further involved in the scientific challenges tackled by the University of Lille.

The diabetes research centre of excellence

The graduate programme is part of PreciDIAB, a collaborative project involving world-renowned scientists from Lille, multidisciplinary clinicians, the healthcare industry, innovative start-ups, diabetes patients and professional associations, with the aim of developing innovative therapies and personalised patient care.
