This year’s Middle Atlantic States Mycology Conference (MASMC 2020) and morel foray are being hosted by your friends at Duke University, Durham NC.   Since 1979, mycologists up and down the eastern seaboard have convened at each other’s institutions to discuss their latest research findings, share a meal, memories and meet new friends. The meetings are always low key, providing students and postdocs the opportunity to present their research findings in a less formal venue than meetings that happen during the rest of the year. 

MASMC is open to both academic and citizen-scientists interested in all areas of academic and applied mycology.    Participants are invited to present informal (15 min) presentations on their current research. Both oral and poster presentations are welcome.  We especially encourage presentations by early career scientists.   An ample time period is also planned for poster presentations during the lunch mixer.
