|Arend van Peer
Team leader Mushroom Research
Wageningen University & Research
|Arend van Peer works as a team leader Mushroom Research at Plant Breeding of Wageningen University & Research.
His interest in fungi started during his Master’s in Biology at the RijksUniversiteit Groningen. Arend was intrigued by their physiology, genetics, and biotechnological applications. During his Ph.D. thesis, he soon realized that studies on applications of mushroom-forming fungi, other than as crops, were only just emerging. A whole unknown and exciting world was awaiting exploration!
|Dr. Jaime Carrasco works at ASOCHAMP-CTICH (Spain) as a researcher. Besides, he is an academic visitor researcher at Department of Plant Sciences, University of Oxford. Jaime is the Innovation Manager for the BIOSCHAMP project, an EU-funded research project that aims to develop an alternative and sustainable peat-reduced biostimulant casing for the mushroom industry, reducing the dependency on and need for pesticides and contributing to improve the productivity, the sustainability, and the profitability of the European mushroom sector.|
