The Mycological Society of America Student Section.

The Mycological Society of America (MSA) Student Section is a student-run group within MSA, which aims to (1) facilitate communication among all students of the Society, (2) provide opportunities for students to network with other individuals in their own research fields and beyond, and (3) connect student members of MSA with scientists performing cutting edge mycological research, providing the possibility for future collaborations. For the 2014 annual meeting in East Lansing, MI, the Student Section organized the symposium “Fungal functional traits in a changing world,” which discussed both the evolution of selected traits and how key attributes of fungal taxa influence their environment and stress response. In 2015, the Student Section initiated a Mycology Skill Share database, that enables students beginning new projects or learning new techniques to easily contact fellow students and other mycologists in specific areas for guidance and/or potential collaboration. For the 2016 MSA meeting in Berkeley, the Student Section is organizing a professional development workshop that will be geared towards preparing graduate students and postdocs for a career in science. The Student Section is open and inclusive, welcoming the participation of graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and faculty(!) in building and pioneering this group. We hope you can join us at our future events
