Learning by example and practice

Each year, nearly 50 master and doctoral students work in research teams of the CIML and 10 of them defend their theses at the CIML.

For all, the years at the CIML will be critical and condition their scientific career. During their training they will learn by example and practice, exercise their creativity among world-class immunologists and contribute with them to solve biological puzzles long considered inaccessible. They will also have the opportunity to confront other cultures, by working in the laboratories of Harvard Medical School and associating with clinicians, engineers and scientists from other disciplines.

As for the philosophy that led to the creation of the CIML, the curriculum of the center was designed for curious and ambitious students who aspire autonomy in a spirit of exchange. This program is part of the curriculum of the School of Life Sciences and Health of Aix-Marseille University and is open for students with scientific and medical training of all nationalities.


International Masters & PhD program in Life sciences

In addition to the doctoral school curriculum the CIML take part in an ambitious international Master and PhD program in life sciences BIOTRAIL, please visit the website for more detailed information.

This program includes renowned institutes on the Luminy campus and offers interdisciplinary training opportunities in Cell and Developmental Biology, Immunology, Neurobiology and Integrative and Quantitative biology.

BIOTRAIL is specifically tailored for international students and offers up to 11 fellowships. The main objectives of the program regarding students are to spread a multidisciplinary vision of biology and promote autonomous and critical thinking in a highly stimulating scientific environment. The program fosters also the students’ mobility offering lab rotations among prestigious institutes in Europe and the United States.
