The scientific community of the Graduate School of Life and Health Sciences (LIFE) is recognized worldwide for the excellence of its research and its contributions in various fundamental fields of life and health sciences such as pathophysiology, neuroscience, chronic diseases, and the biology of ecosystems.

The life sciences are experiencing a scientific revolution caused by unprecedented growth in data resolution and volume, at all biological scales. Scientific excellence now goes beyond deciphering essential molecular mechanisms or understanding simplified model systems. It is based on the generation, processing, and integration of complex, massive, and multi-scale data, which require sophisticated approaches that include modeling and machine learning.


LIFE, with its world-renowned scientific community, is the ideal place to foster such a transition. Along with its biological excellence, the region is internationally recognized in mathematics, physics, chemistry and computer science, notably with the creation of one of the four Interdisciplinary Institutes of Artificial Intelligence (3IA) in France.

On the strength of these assets, LIFE has extended its mission which is now to train a new generation of scientists who will be able to face these fundamental changes in the life sciences and become actively involved in implementing the societal and economic developments to come.
