FEMS-Lwoff awardees

We are proud and honoured to award not one, but two eminent scientists with the Lwoff Award at FEMS 2015, in appreciation of their contributions to microbiology research over the last years. Rudolf Thauer, active in the field of anaerobic microbiology and Fernando Baquero, committed to virulence and antibiotic resistance.

Both awardees will be giving a talk at the closing ceremony of FEMS 2015, on Thursday 11 June 2015.

And the winner is...

‘Original and esthetic’, was the enthusiastic comment of the jury on Lesley  Robertson’s submission. The video ‘Through the eyes of Antonie van Leeuwenhoek’ shows what the first visual encounter with microbes probably looked like.


The FEMS Image Contest is part of our 40th anniversary celebrations. The winner of the FEMS Image Contest will receive book tokens from Oxford University Press at a value of £ 250 and showcasing of her video both the Oxford Academic Tumblr
and OUP’s YouTube channel.
