Program outline

This second year Master degree allows students to deepen their theoretical and practical knowledge in the field of analytical control of drugs and health products that are based on plants. It focuses on the quality control of such health products compared to international standards.

The Master degree also aims to increase the safety of therapeutic products that are based on plants and which are therefore not concerned by the pharmaceutical circuit controls. The program thus develops a strong interdisciplinary dimension through the involvement of pharmaceutical sciences, technical sciences and the legal domain.
