Research and Innovation

We research fungi biology, cultivation, and applications in the food and medicine. 

If you have a research project in fungi applications and are looking for an enthusiastic team for collaboration, please get in touch. We are also interested in initialising academic partnerships to conduct potential research projects in the following areas:

 Aotearoa Native Edible Mushrooms

To systematically forge and search for New Zealand native mushroom strains, evaluate their mechanics, analyse biochemical ingredients.


It will be a lifelong journey to forage the edible native mushrooms and develop them as an alternative food and medicine. This is an ongoing project in Mushborn. These mushrooms are collected and will be studied through standard laboratory procedures.
