One of the CEPR’s assets is having a diversified permanent personnel, made up of researchers (Inserm or CNRS), clinicians (university professors/hospital practitioners and university lecturers/hospital practitioners) as well as professors and lecturers (“PR” and “MCF” affiliated with Tours university (faculty of sciences, medicine, pharmacy and technology institute).

These last two categories of staff, as part of their assignments, provide a substantial amount of teaching and pedagogical supervision (over 192 hours annually).

All of the training, teaching and supervision activities performed by CEPR members can be enumerated as follows:

In the faculty of Science and Technology:

-       Responsibility for the study course (branch A) at the “Health - Biological Sciences - Life Chemistry” Doctoral School (ED 549, SSBCV).

-       Management of the Departments of Biochemistry and Microbiology

-       Management of the Research Masters 2 "Pathophysiology" and license L3 "Life Sciences" 

-       Responsibility for the “Biology and Health” Masters 1 programme and teaching coordination.

-       Multiple responsibility for courses in L1, L2, L3, M1 and M2 (faculty of Science, faculty of medicine, Technology Institute,…).


At the technology university institute:

-       Management of the Bioengineering Department; Responsibility for technological degrees in biological and biochemical analysis and internships

In the faculty of Medicine:

-       Deanship since 2014

-       Coordination of DESC and DES (Centre-Val de Loire Region)

-       Pulmonology Commission of the National Residency Competition Board, etc.


In the faculty of Pharmacy:

-       Responsibility for the residency process

-       Member of the pedagogical commission


Lastly, it is important to note that over the course of the present mandate, the 3 CEPR teams have hosted 20 students who favourably defended their PhD theses in biological sciences. Furthermore, the dynamic nature of the scientific output as well as the research themes developed by our laboratory is continuing to gain attractiveness among the younger generation, as illustrated by the arrival  on October 2016 of 5 additional new doctoral candidates (funded by doctoral allocations from the ministry, a CIFRE industry contract and an Inserm research fellowship for clinicians).
