Material Science & Nanotechnologies @ BioInterfacesInternational & Interdisciplinary graduate courses

MatNanoBiois an Interdisciplinary & International Graduate Master2 with courses taught in English intended for students with either Chemistryor Physics background.

MatNanoBiois jointly organized by University Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC) in Paris and NTU (Nanyang Technological University, Singapore) with the support of the International Research lab, Majulab, and the company, HORIBA

MatNanoBiooffers a truly inter-disciplinary course at the frontier of Material Science, Nanotechnologies and BioInterfaces, which will allow the students to communicate efficiently in an ever-increasing multidisciplinary research environment.

MatNanoBio provides the highest formation in physical chemistry, bioInterfacesand optical instrumentation so that students will either apply in companies related to biochemistry, medical instrumentation, pharmacology, or pursue a university career with a PhD thesis.

Financial Support

MatNanoBioMaster received special support from various institutions and will be able to offer several grants for supporting internship in foreign countries.

  • Form@Innov, Sorbonne Universities
  • UPMC & NTU
  • Erasmus/Eurasicatgrants for students
  • LabExMatisse and LabExMichem



Admissions to MatNanoBioare decided by the directors of the master, after examination of the student application and after an interview: face to face or by videoconference, Skype, Hangout.
Candidates must have validated their M1 (physics or chemistry) or have an equivalent level (1st of graduate studies).
