On Wednesday, February 15th, 2017 was the grand opening of the SchimmelLAB at the Universiteitsmuseum Utrecht. With great pleasure they invite you for this new exhibition which they organize in cooperation with the Westerdijk Institute and researchers from the Department of Biology.
The SchimmelLAB is organized as part of the Westerdijk Year. Johanna Westerdijk researched fungi and plant diseases and was in charge of the fungus collection of the Centraal Bureau voor Schimmelcultures. In 2017 it has been hundred years since she became the first female professor in the Netherlands.
The MycoTEX dress has been acquired by the Universiteitsmuseum and is part of this exhibition.
