My Life as a Researcher

Established three years ago, The Institut de Biologie Paris-Seine (IBPS) has been welcoming to Sorbonne University for fun hands-on work based on the concepts of molecular biology and genetics.

My Life as a Researcher

Presented as a scientific police investigation and supervised by young doctoral students, students are called upon to apply an investigative approach just like real investigators and mobilise their knowledge to unmask the culprit!

Organised since 2017, this program is aimed at 1st and 12th year high school students in the Paris Region that are taking the Scientific and Science & Laboratory Technology (S/STL) sections in their schools.
This initiative, supported by the Île-de-France Region, the Rectorate, Paris City Council and the Academies of Versailles, Créteil and Paris has several objectives:

  • To consolidate the concepts discussed in class throughout the year in an interactive and original way.
  • To follow a rigorous scientific approach similar to real researchers
  • To introduce high-school students to the university and show that it is accessible to them.
  • To present the biology courses and the different careers they can offer.

Contacts and informations :

The faculty of medicine is closed to the public and operates according to a business continuity plan (research, pedagogy, administrative) since Monday, March 16, 2020. The closure of the faculty to the public effectively results in the cancellation of all courses in face-to-face. Research activities and vital administrative activities are maintained, under the conditions specified by the university administration in the Business Continuity Plan. Beyond the end of classroom lessons, university libraries are closed. The situation is constantly changing, staff and students are invited to consult their emails, the university intranet and the FAQ to stay informed.

All users (students and staff) have access to more precise information on a dedicated page:
