Monell Newsletter: Gum Sentinels & Sharing Science

  • A Look at the Past Year. Our 2018-19 Annual Report describes Monell’s continued explorations into the ways taste and smell affect our lives and our health.
  • Guardian of the Gums. Newly discovered chemical-sensing cells in the gums protect the mouth by standing guard against infections that damage soft tissue and destroy the bone that supports the teeth.
  • Monell Apprenticeship 2020. The Monell Science Apprenticeship Program brings high school and undergraduate college students to the Center each summer. We are currently accepting applications for the Summer 2020 eight-week, paid internship.
  • Monell in the Community. Monellians can often be found outside the Center sharing their knowledge about the biology of taste and smell and how it is intertwined with everyday life.
