The FNR is pleased to share the newest podcast episode in the collaboration with Lëtzebuerger Journal. The ‘Mäin Element’ podcast series features researchers in Luxembourg talking about their lives and their passion for science, showing a glimpse of the people behind the science.

In this episode, we meet Cladine Backes, researcher at the Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH) and Scientific Director as well as epidemiologist at the Registre National du Cancer du Grand-Duché du Luxembourg (RNC). Claudine is always motivated to help other people – in the podcast, we learn if a summer tan is bad, what it looks like behind the scenes at WHO and what kind of Smalltalk to have with Greta Thunberg.
