The FNR is inviting all researchers in Luxembourg to ‘go back to school’ and inspire the next generation of researchers! “Chercheurs à l’école” is your chance to interact and motivate future generations, and share the passion that got you into research in the first place. Registration for the 2019 edition, taking place from Monday, 25 – Friday, 29 March 2019, is open!
To highlight early-career researchers across the world, the FNR is running a social media and website campaign, and is actively looking to hear from PhD or Postdoc researchers with a connection to Luxembourg. This is an opportunity for early-career researchers to showcase their work, and inspire students who may be considering a career in research.
The AAL Call 2019 European Info Day will take place on 31 January in Brussels, hosted by AAL and jointly organised with some of the BENELUX National Funding Authorities. The FNR participates in AAL Calls as part of its INTER programme to foster international collaboration between researchers in Luxembourg and abroad. The 2019 AAL Call … Continued

When a child is born by vaginal birth, important immune system-stimulating bacteria pass from the mother to the baby, which could explain why babies delivered by caesarean are more prone to diseases linked to the immune system. This important discovery was made by a team of researchers in a study led by FNR ATTRACT Fellow Associate Prof Dr Paul Wilmes from the LCSB at the University of Luxembourg.
Dr Stan Schymanski is passionate about nature and the outdoors, so much that he shaped his education and career around it. At the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST), the biologist studies various aspects of how plants interact with their surroundings. We spoke to the German national about dual science careers, understanding plants, and what it’s like to be a scientist studying the effects of a changing climate.
Researchers at the University of Luxembourg have discovered a molecular mechanism that is responsible for the spread of cancer cells in the body and the development of metastases in patients with colon cancer. Their findings, published in ‘Cancer Research’, could help to develop treatments that inhibit tumor growth.
As part of a research project to better understand the human mind, a research group at the University of Luxembourg, led by FNR ATTRACT Fellow and experimental psychologist Prof Pedro Cardoso-Leite, has developed a game to help children learn to count. The game is a research tool in itself: the goal is to help children learn by understanding how they learn.
