The objectives of the  Neurobiology Neurosciences (NN) program at Université Grenoble Alpes are to provide the students with a strong scientific background in the various aspects of Neurosciences, from the most integrated ones to the cellular aspects. The students will also become familiar with the various techniques used in this developing field in Biology.


At the end of this 2 year Neurobiology Neurosciences (NN) program at Université Grenoble Alpes (UGA), the students should be able to undertake a PhD program in the fields of Neurobiology or Neurosciences.

The first year of the "Neurobiology-Neurosciences" (NN) Master program (“Molecular and Cellular Biology” program) is meant to: 

  • complete the general scientific background of the enrolled students in various fields of Biology (Cell Biology, Genetics and Biochemistry) (first semester of the Master 1 program) 
  • introduce the students to their specific Master 2 program by offering them specialized courses (second semester of the Master 1 program) 
  • introduce the students to a research project, from its conception to its experimental undertaking and up to the report of the obtained results by an oral presentation as well as a written report (module of 18 ECTS during the first semester of the Master 1 program
  • internship of 2 months in a research laboratory or in a R&D laboratory from a private company) 
  • allow the students to develop their written and oral skills for the search of internships and/or jobs as well as for the presentation of research projects and experimental results 


Graduating from a Master degree in "Neurobiology - Neuroscience" leads to a career as a research engineer in academic or private laboratories.

For the students interested in a career as a research scientist in academic institutions or in private pharmaceutical industries: consecutively to a Master degree in "Neurobiology - Neurosciences", the students may choose to continue a PhD program and related to the aforementioned fields of Biology.
