Introducing our speaker Paul Wilmes

We are very glad to announce our next speaker Paul Wilmes. He is Associate Professor of Systems Ecology at the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine of the University of Luxembourg, where he is Deputy Head of the Systems Biomedicine Department and Head of the Eco-Systems Biology research group. His main primary research focus is on using Systems Biology approaches to identify key functionalities of microbial communities including human associated microbiota. His talk has the title “The ecology of the unseen“.

Our collective lifestyles are impacting the microbes in our gut. However, we do not understand their functions as most microbial molecules are currently unknown to Science. We are thereby changing the ecology of the unseen within us without understanding the likely repercussions in relation to human health and disease.
