Nice Sophia Antipolis University (France) is launching a new Master of Science program in Computational Biology. The scientific goal of this program is to focus on the human being from different perspectives (understanding and modeling functional aspects or interpreting biomedical signals from various devices) and at different scales (from molecules to organs and the whole organism).

GOAL: The goal of this program is to provide excellent academic or industrial career opportunities by offering high level coverage of modeling and computing principles that will help to meet the challenges and make the technological choices of tomorrow in the domains of biological and medical computing. To achieve this, all classes will be given in English by several outstanding professors and researchers from research institutes in the campus: Nice Sophia Antipolis University/CNRS (I3S, IPMC, LJAD, INLN) and INRIA. The curriculum consists of two periods, namely classes over a 6 months period, followed by a research internship.
