Drug Development

The Graduate School aims to train researchers and healthcare professionals in the field of drug discovery and development. The training includes various subjects associating fundamental, clinical and translational research.

The Master’s programmes are designed for students for gain understanding and expertise from the Faculties of Pharmacy and of Sciences collaborating with the university’s research centres and teams as well as hospitals and socio-economic stakeholders such as the pharmaceutical industry.


On the international scene, many French and European universities are involved in the Graduate School of Drug Development leading to a number of Master’s programmes, labelled Erasmus Mundus and/or joint-degrees, mainly taught in English. The Graduate School work in close collaboration with other Graduate Schools such as École de Chimie Physique de Paris and Innovative Therapies in Cancerology.

The Graduate School of Drug Development gathers students from different pathways, scientific as well as health-based, blending them together with veterinarians and students from other higher institutions. The Graduate School has excellent Master’s students thanks to A-levelled students specialised in scientific subjects such as chemistry, biophysics, bioinformatics, biology, genetics, or in relation with these subjects.

Along with the research units of Université Paris Cité and those of other French universities, many research teams, institutes, laboratories, and most national agencies in the field of drug receive students for internship.
