Head of Research & Development

Henry Jephson

Following nearly 2 decades in the aquatic industry where he was responsible for coral propagation and life support system design for some of the largest private aquariums in the United Kingdom, Henry made the transition over to lab based mycology at The Bristol Fungarium due to certain ethical realities he could no longer overlook within the aquatic world. Henry leads the research & development of our commercial strains, manages our ever growing specimen library, and oversees our continual process optimisation from agar to fruiting body. We are very thankful that he has chosen to re-engage with this long held interest in mycology and Henry is thoroughly enjoying the challenge of scaling up our commercial medicinal mushroom range, with a personal preference for the delightful intricacies of cordyceps.
