Practical teaching introduction to Research

A program of training has a practice in the experimental approaches being a member of the level internship 4th year of university is proposed to prepare the students for their entrance to the program of Master 2. This internship must be completed by EU fundamental organized on the faculty and in Medicine. The laboratory welcomes students of the Mention BCPP Speciality Biomineralization, Morphogenesis and Inflammatory Pathologies and other specialities of Master’s degree

Master's degree BCPP

Research Speciality ``biomineralization, morphogenesis and inflammatory pathologies`` (BMPI)

The speciality” biomineralization, morphogenesis and inflammatory pathologies ” is intended for the research. Its contents are adapted to the themes of oral and osteo-articular health. It is a place of exchange between students and researchers, odontologists, doctors and scientists with a national and international participation. The theoretical contents (6 EU) give a global vision of skeleton tissues, stem cells in the biomineralization, the inflammatory processes and the cellular biotherapics with bio-active materials. The internshipsare a personal coverage(care), redrawn by a report, of a scientific question in laboratories of excellent welcome (reception). It is advised (recommended) to get in touch with the speciality to pilot the choice of its research team in connection with objectives or personal affinities (genetics, pathology, growth and development, materials, tissular engineering, immunology). The oral tests which one in English and written take place at the end of every half-year.

The speciality “Oral Applied Pathophysiology” has for objective to form by the clinical approach of the students stemming from diverse formations of the sector health, including the veterinarians. In term of public health, needs evolve, requiring a care of specific sick, in particular people disabled or reached (affected) by rare diseases. So there was a creation of specialized centers and the necessity for the odontologists to deepen their skills. We also observe a therapeutic sophistication associated with the evolutions of the research in odontology (use of growth factors, dental implants, etc.).The speciality OAP is organized allowing the student to deepen its knowledge in one of the fields disciplinary of the Odontology:



-Pediatric Dentistry and Rare Diseases

The students have to follow clinical clerkship corresponding to the discipline of orientation, in the first and second year of Master’s degree. The student’s selection is made on audition with a selection committee Master to 4th year of university.

Recurrent health crises (asbestos, dioxin, magnetic fields, bisphenol A,…) clearly highlight the close relations between man and his environment and the sometimes dramatic consequences of a poor health risk assessment. The development of new technologies and innovations in industry and research (e.g. nanotechnologies) mean that new substances are constantly being generated. Improving knowledge leads to the identification of emerging risks (e.g. endocrine disrupters) and the question of the effects of environments on health (general environment, professional environment, food) is a major concern. In order to meet the challenges related to human health, while respecting the environment, it is essential that education be provided that takes into account current toxicological and safety concerns (air and water quality, toxicological safety of foodstuffs, safety of working environments).

The “Toxicology, Environment, Health” (TES) course aims to train students from different origins (biologists, doctors, pharmacists, veterinarians, agronomists, environmental and chemical engineers as well as actors from the professional world. Thanks to this multidisciplinary training, the graduate will have solid scientific knowledge on the cellular and molecular mechanisms of action of environmental pollutants and their physio-pathological consequences, on the exposure modalities according to the considered environments (general and professional) and good bases in epidemiology and risk assessment.

He will also have professional skills (bibliographic analysis and synthesis, written and oral communication of experimental results, team work, ability to debate).
