Citizen Scientist Heros

Curiosity is a uniquely human trait. It compels all of us to learn more about the world in which we live. This sense of curiosity is what drives the process of scientific discovery. We continue to be amazed by the incredible outpouring of support from people living across the United States who share with us that same spirit of curiosity and have decided to express it by joining the Citizen Science Soil Collection Program. You are the true heroes of science and we are so thrilled that your inquisitiveness and imagination are helping us learn about the fungi that inhabit our planet, as well as find new compounds to help fight disease.
