A happy scientist happy to talk answer questions

Ask a Medical Mycologist

Whether you’re thinking about your GCSE’s, deciding whether to apply for university, or are just curious about medical mycology, we are here to answer your questions.

Please ask your question here and we will match you to a researcher who will respond within one week.

Invite a Medical Mycologist to talk to your group

Please get in touch if you would like a researcher to talk to your community, we can arrange talks and outreach events for all ages. This is usually fully funded by our Centre.

Our quiz is designed to test your medical mycology knowledge!

Top tip – you might want to watch this talk and interview with Dr. Peter Cook before you challenge yourself.
