Course overview

The AIRE Life Sciences Master (AIRE-LiSc) is an interdisciplinary two-year program tackling quantitative approaches of different interfaces in Life Sciences. Its goal is to study Life Sciences through an innovative, interdisciplinary approach based on the convergence of Biology, Physics, Computer Sciences, and many other disciplines. Students following this program can build their own unique course portfolio, and gain substantial, meaningful research experience thanks to the CRI internship-rich program. Students also work in an international environment that promotes teamwork and collaborations, and thus build long-lasting ties with researchers and fellow students from all over the world.

The AIRE-LiSc program employs a learning-through-research pedagogy approach and comprises several research internships and collaborative projects. It also aims at training creative and talented students to develop their curriculum and research in an enriching environment that fares up to the best graduate programs in the world.
