To showcase the many paths of women in science in Luxembourg, and to inspire young girls to pursue their passion for science, the institutions that form Research Luxembourg have launched the video series Women [& girls] in Science, in collaboration with MEGA, the Ministry for Equality in Luxembourg.
Choosing the path of science and research can have many trajectories. To show a glimpse of what different science journeys can look like, we selected 6 women in science in Luxembourg, each representing a different institution, scientific focus, background, and function. From PhD candidates, to science communicators, lab specialists and a professor, the options for a career in science are many.
Michèle Weber started her career in science with a PhD in immunology and has since pursued a multifaceted career in science communication at the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR), where she for example writes and coordinates articles for science.luon a range of scientific topics.
