Are you a mycologist affected by Hurricane Harvey or Irma? If you need to shelter in another laboratory, please reach out to Dr. Anne Pringle at She is collecting a list of laboratories with the potential to host you for a short term stay. While there aren’t funds to support your travel, there is space for science and scholarship, and potentially housing as well. Please send Dr. Pringle a brief description of how you’ve been affected, and what you’re looking for in a shelter.

If you’re running a laboratory and have space to shelter a refugee, please also let Dr. Pringle know.
