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!
