The Labex Dynamo
DYNAMO also has a mission to teach and to nurture the development of the next generation of young scientists. Members of the consortium are involved in teaching efforts all the way from high-school to Masters level courses. In addition to these courses, we teach practival modules in our own labs to expose budding scientists to the excitement and rigors of working at the bench. DYNAMO scientists are members of three different Parisian universities, Sorbonne Université, Université Paris Diderot and Paris-Sciences-et-Lettres. Added to the renowned public education efforts provided by the Collège de France and the top tier higher level education provided by the Ecole Normale Supérieure, our teaching efforts cover a broad swath of the south Paris area. Since its inception, DYNAMO has progressively increased its teaching activities at Masters level and has so far trained about 150 students in structural biology, bioenergetics, microbiology, chemistry, molecular and synthetic biology. Our teaching activities have access to advanced facilities such as the unique display wall at Institut de Biologie Physico-Chimique. Our vision is that mutualisation is the best way to offer high-level Masters level training by top scientists independently of their institutional origin.
