Master Exploring Life and Environment

publié le , mis à jour le

EVE aims to offer a solid education in physical instrumentation and methods for the study of living systems and of the environment.

The presence in Grenoble of several special large research instruments, such as the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) and the neutron facility of the Laue-Langevin Institute (ILL), state-of-the-art analytical and material characterization research tools in electronic microscopy, mass spectroscopy, as well important facilities in modern biology like the Institute of Neurosciences (GIN) or Albert Bonniot Institute (IAB) makes it uniquely suited to offer a research-oriented, 2nd-year master program like EVE.

The core program of EVE includes 3 courses : structural and dynamical biology, statistical data analysis and numerical simulation, optics and biological systems. Depending on their interests and career objectives, students are then free to chose 5 other courses between Physics of Living Systems , Physics of Complex Fluids , Cell Biology , Magnetic resonance imaging , optical spectroscopy , image processing , biomedical imaging. It’s not just training physicists able to develop instrumentation, but also experimental physicists training to understand, explore and modelise complex matter like the living matter.
