November 9, 2023 – Henry Hurt just nailed his MS thesis defense in the Plant Pathology program today.   His thesis, titled “From Waste to Food: Transforming Organic Waste Substrates into Delightful Edible and Medicinal Mushrooms in Washington,” received an enthusiastic reception from the audience during his exit seminar. Great job, Henry! Special thanks to his awesome committee members, Drs. Tarah Sullivan and Mark Swanson. We extend our gratitude to David Wheeler for his instrumental role in conceptualizing and supporting Henry’s thesis project.
