A dedicated mycologist for over thirty years, Paul Stamets has discovered four new species of mushrooms, authored six definitive texts and pioneered countless techniques in the field of edible and medicinal mushroom cultivation. Actively researching the medicinal properties of mushrooms, Paul is involved in two NIH-funded clinical studies on cancer and HIV treatments. 

Stamets supports pioneering and visionary research into the role of mushrooms for ecological restoration. His popular Ted Talk, "Six Ways Mushrooms Can Save the World," has been viewed nearly 1.5 million times. Stamets believes we could terraform other worlds in our galaxy by sowing a mix of fungal spores and other seeds to create an ecological footprint on a new planet. He has filed 22 patents for mushroom-related technologies, including pesticidal fungi that trick insects into eating them, and mushrooms that can break down the neurotoxins used in nerve gas. At CoSM, Paul will discuss all of this and sign copies of his most recent book, Mycelium Running: How Mushrooms Can Help Save The World.
