The Japanese ambassador visits the Westerdijk Institute by Webmaster News 2017-06-12 07:24:42
 

We got a visit from the ambassador of Japan, mr Hirosha Inomata and his wife. They were accompanied by the mayor of Gemeente Utrecht, Jan van Zanen. The tour was led by Ronald de Vries, our group leader Fungal Physiology Research. The Japanese ambassador was very impressed with the size of the collection and the efforts and initiatives to mine this collection for relevant enzymes and metabolites. He could imagine that many people would want to come here and use our infrastructure, including companies.
We always feel very proud to show our collection and our research.
