Friday 3 March, 45 first-year students of the Utrecht University (following a course about Fungi and Medicines) visited the Westerdijk Institute while visiting the fungal centers at the Utrecht Science Parc campus. During this course students learn about many aspects of fungi as well as their applications in biotech/medical setting. The students work in groups on a small research project. They have a list of topics available, but students are also invited to be inspired by the site visit and find other topics of interest.

From 09.00-10.00 they were treated to short, inspiring talks by the Westerdijk group leaders. And after that they were taken on a tour through the Westerdijk Fungal Collection.
