EDBMIC > The doctoral school EDBMIC


Presentation of ED BMIC


The Molecular, Integrative and Cellular Biology Doctoral School (ED BMIC) of Lyon covers a vast field of study within the biological sciences. The school gathers together some one hundred research teams working for a better understanding of biological processes, from the regulation of gene expression to an integrative vision of biological phenomena.

ED BMIC stands out for seeking to integrate biological mechanisms into functional issues and to compare as much as possible normal and pathological situations. Furthermore, thanks to the many HDRs (accredited research directors) working in its laboratories, the doctoral school guarantees quality supervision and training to each of its PhD students.


Key figures for the doctoral school


The doctoral school BMIC is home to:

  •  300 PhD students
  •  Over 100 research teams
  •  18 research units
  •  260 HDRs (accredited research directors)
  •  60 theses defended each year



The Molecular, Integrative and Cellular Biology Doctoral School is one of 4 biology doctoral schools among the 17 doctoral schools at the Université de Lyon. ED BMIC benefits from the scientific resources and networks of the Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1, to which it is attached, as well as of ENS Lyon, associated with the doctoral school project.
