2022 OMS Scholarship Winner

OMS Scholarships – 10 years of supporting mycology students!

It is my pleasure to announce our scholarship winner for 2022. Nathan Stewart is a PhD student at Portland State University studying in the laboratory of Dr. Daniel Ballhorn.

Nathan’s research is exploring the interactions between bacteria and mushroom forming fungi. Fungi have been extensively studied as members of other organisms’ microbiomes, but only in recent years have they begun to be examined as hosts of microbiomes in their own right. Nathan will be able to add to our collective knowledge about this interesting topic.

We look forward to hearing about his research at an upcoming general meeting (not yet scheduled).

Congratulations Nathan!
