My name is Nicole Lau, and I am the 2022 AMS Graduate Award winner. I am a MSc student in Conservation Biology, working under the supervision of Dr. Justine Karst at the University of Alberta. In my research, I explored the role of mycorrhizal fungal communities in influencing soil carbon storage following mountain pine beetle disturbance. This Friday, December 1, 2023, I will be defending my research and I would like to invite you to attend the seminar at 9:30 am. This is the Zoom link to access the seminar virtually: https://ualberta-ca.zoom.us/j/98536128480. Thank you so much to all of the members of the AMS for the continued support! Nicole

*To encourage the growth of more knowledgeable fungal experts, the AMS has created the AMS Graduate Award in collaboration with the U of A. Each March, a deserving graduate student studying mycology or fungal biology is awarded $2,000. If donations to this award reach $50,000 in 5 years, an endowment will be created, and this financial aid will be awarded in perpetuity.
Please help us help other dedicated students like Nicole by donating to the U of A AMS Graduate Award. November is the month of giving with the 28th declared as Giving Tuesday. For the remainder of November, the AMS Board is doubling your donations to a maximum of $5,000.
