Biology of Ageing and Longevity specialization

This is a specialization of the master of Integrative Biology and Physiology

This specialization has a double objective: firstly, to understand the cellular and molecular mechanisms which underlie ageing; secondly, to understand the relation between the normal and pathological ageing of the main organs and functions. This means analyzing, on various models and on humans, the evolution of ageing over time and depending on environmental factors


cellular and molecular mecanisms - ageing - longevity - physiology
