Prof. Mark Adams to open the new Marsh Lawson Mushroom Research Facility at University of Sydney

It is with great pleasure that I write to invite you to join us for the official launch of the new Marsh Lawson Mushroom Research Unit on Tuesday, 30th October 2012.  
This brand new international-class research facility, one of only a handful of such entities in the world, undertakes projects with university academics, pharmaceutical and nutraceutical producers, and conducts independent trials for suppliers to the mushroom industry. It offers a new focus for a broad spectrum of experimental work in the areas of human nutrition, biological science, medicine and agriculture. 
The launch will commence at 9am, when guests can meet and chat over real coffee and freshly cooked mushroom snacks with the research unit’s operational team and board members of the unit’s sponsor, the Australian Mushroom Growers’ Association (AMGA).
The official opening by Prof. Mark Adams, Dean Faculty of Agriculture and Environment will take place at 9.30am and will be marked by a short talk on the broad research goals for the facility to be given by industry leader Greg Seymour, President of the International Society for Mushroom Science (ISMS) and General manager of the AMGA.
Following the launch, the mushroom research unit will remain open to visitors (and continue serving mushroom finger food and great coffee) until 3pm. A map of University of Sydney’s Village Green Precinct, showing the location for the event and directions for parking, is attached.
I would be extremely grateful if you could R.S.V.P by no later than Friday 26th October to Lynn Christie on 02 9527 0826 or at or to Prue Winkler 
I hope you are able to accept this invitation and I look forward to welcoming you on the 30th of October. 
Yours sincerely,
