Knowledge transfer is essential, in order to train future scientists, but also to inform citizens about research progress. Many members of our center are involved in teaching (see Teaching team).
Lecturers in the unit – 3 professors and 7 assistant professors – do most of the teaching but Ph.D. students, post-docs, and researchers are also much involved in this transmission.
Ph.D. students and post-docs in the unit teach university and pharmacology students in Cell Biology, Molecular Biology, Toxicology, and Biostatistics/Bioinformatics.
Professors and assistant professors in the unit teach in diverse fields ranging from Cell Biology, Genetics, Molecular Biology, Biostatistics/Bioinformatics to Methodology or Neurosciences courses. They teach from 1st-year bachelor level to Master 2, in all the University programs.
Researchers in the unit mainly teach Master’s and Ph.D. modules in Cell Biology, Genetics, and Molecular Biology.
