George Preti, PhD, was a true Monell patriarch, leading the quest for knowledge about taste and smell and serving in this role for most of Monell’s 50-year history. Dr. Preti spearheaded important research seeking early diagnostic tools for hidden diseases such as ovarian cancer. He was also an expert in various diseases that produce malodors, as well as an ambassador to patient communities. He will be long recognized for his vital contributions to human health and as a great humanitarian.
Thank you for joining us in celebrating his achievements through the establishment of the George Preti Support Research Core for Analytical Chemistry at Monell. This effort will bring George’s vitally important and foundational research capabilities in analytical chemistry to the whole of the Monell and our international collaborators.
