The IRCM is made up of 33 research units bringing together, under one roof, basic researchers and clinical researchers, split among five research divisions: systems biology and medical chemistry, cancer, immunity and viral infections, cardiovascular and metabolic diseases, neurobiology and development.
Master’s students in the MCM option carry out two four-month research internships, alternated between the fall and winter semesters, in two different molecular biology laboratories of their choice. Thus, as part of the Internships with Report 1 and 2 (BIM 6075A and BIM 6075B), students carry out a research project in applied human biology under supervision, and prepare an internship report as a scientific manuscript. The purpose of the research internship is to train the student in logic, research methods and research practice in the context of translational medicine. Students will then be asked to summarize and make an oral presentation on their research work as part of the Research Seminar 1 course (BIM 6035).
