Mushroom Science at Penn State

I’ve walked by this sign outside Buckhout Lab a hundred times without making a picture.  Today was its day.  Buckhout is home to the Department of Plant Pathology and the source of much of the mushroom science at Penn State. It’s easy to overlook things that are right in front of you. Like the mushroom research going on in the College of Ag Sciences. While most of us think of mushrooms first as a food they do have other secrets being chased by researchers including investigations that hope to find ways to use mushrooms to produce human drugs.

I need to pay more attention.
