Science Café with Thomas Jung is an unconventional open discussion with theme "Phytophthora species – threats for our nature".
Thomas Jung is one of the most renowned Phytophthora experts in the world. Phytophthora is a genus of plant-damaging Oomycetes (water molds), whose member species are capable of causing enormous economic losses on crops worldwide, as well as environmental damage in natural ecosystems.

His current institution is the Mendel University in Brno, Czech Republic, where he runs the Phytophthora Research Centre.
