New podcast in collaboration with Lëtzebuerger Journal: Prof Paul Wilmes

The FNR is pleased to share the newest podcast in the collaboration with Lëtzebuerger Journal. Titled ‘Mäin Element’, the series features researchers in Luxembourg talking about their lives and their passion for science, showing a glimpse of the people behind the science. The fourth episode features microbiology researcher Prof Dr Paul Wilmes (LCSB).

Paul Wilmes is Professor of Systems Ecology at the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB) of the University of Luxembourg, where he is Head of the Systems Ecology research group (Wilmes Lab). After three years of postdoctoral research at the University of California, Berkeley (USA), he returned to his native Luxembourg in early 2010 through an FNR ATTRACT Fellowship. Prof Wilmes has won two FNR Awards and is the deputy spokesman for the Research Luxembourg COVID-19 taskforce.
