The Centre offers five graduate programs related to its scientific activities.
Wanting to help decrease the shortage of qualified manpower in the area of biotechnology, INRS-Institut Armand-Frappier offers and adequate graduate study program corresponding to the pluridisciplinary and industrial nature as well as to the numerous aspects of the applied biotechnology area. The major objective of this program is to offer our students the possibility of acquiring extensive and pluridisciplinary knowledge in the area of applied microbiology. The theoretical and practical knowledge acquired through this program under the supervision of experienced researchers will prepare our students to undertake doctorate studies or join the workforce immediately.

The main objective of this graduate study program is to initiate students to fundamental research in the experimental health sciences.
By favoring molecular or cellular approaches, the student will perform research studies to evaluate the consequences of toxic substances present in the environment on human health. During his/her studies, the student will have to acquire knowledge on the relationship between environmental aggressors and at least two key physiological systems (endocrine, nervous, immune, reproductive, gastro-intestinal, pulmonary or cardio-vasculary).

This program focuses on forming specialists with an expertise in two related disciplines. It answers a growing demand for disciplinary decompartmentalization in order to assure a thematic approach to health and environmental problems. The flexibility of this program allows the definition, on an individual basis, of a major orientation in virology or in immunology while allowing the candidate to acquire a solid theoretical and practical knowledge of the complementary discipline. Thanks to this polyvalent training, this program prepares the candidates to either pursue doctorate studies or enter the workforce.

The main objective of this program is to form researchers in biological sciences, through the development of elaborate disciplinary knowledge, of analytical capabilities and a sense of synthesis. Students will join pluridisciplinary teams oriented towards solving problems. Their training will be complemented with a knowledge of personnel and budget management and elementary pedagogy.

The main objective of this program is to form open-minded leaders with a solid basic training able to solve pluridisciplinary problems. This program answers a growing demand for researchers able to join research teams using their complementary expertise to help resolve problems related to human and animal health and to the environment as well as the associated biotechnologies. The flexibility of this program allows the definition, on an individual basis, of a major orientation in virology or in immunology while allowing the candidate to acquire a solid theoretical and practical knowledge of the complementary discipline. Thanks to this polyvalent training, this program prepares the candidates to a state-of-the-art career either in universities, governments or industries.
