“I started climbing when I was at university and, after my course, I felt like I had to decide which one I wanted to go for,” Charel Wohl says: science or the great outdoors. In fact, his research experience in biochemistry led him to a PhD project that will let him combine his passions – at both poles of the planet!

Charel, who also goes by Charlie, got his start with the FJSL, an association in Luxembourg that organizes a competition for young scientists, giving high school students a chance to experience real research firsthand.

Here, he tells us about that first study that gave him a taste for biochem, his experiences around Europe, thanks to the FJSL, and, most importantly, what’s coming next as his research career takes off.
