We are a mycological research lab at Oregon State University. We study evolution of fungal symbioses including those with bacteria, humans, and plants. We share a large, brand new, state of the art research laboratory with Mycology Professors Posy Busby and Joey Spatafora at OSU.
Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon, is located within the traditional homelands of the Mary’s River or Ampinefu Band of Kalapuya. Following the Willamette Valley Treaty of 1855, Kalapuya people were forcibly removed to reservations in Western Oregon. Today, living descendants of these people are a part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde Community of Oregon (grandronde.org) and the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz Indians (ctsi.nsn.us).
