Our senses shape our lives in ways we are only beginning to understand. Monell’s cutting-edge research focuses on taste, smell, and related senses to provide a framework for advances across many areas of human health and well-being.
Monell’s research approach is highly collaborative and interdisciplinary, sensory psychologists work with biophysicists, chemists with behavioral neuroscientists, environmental scientists with geneticists. Many approaches and tools, ranging from sensory assessment to genetics, are shared across programs, facilitating, and strengthening Monell’s interdisciplinary approach.
Monell promotes a culture of scientific rigor and reproducibility and is a member of the Association of Research Integrity Officers, an organization that provides a dedicated platform for discussing, developing, and sharing best practices and strategies for promoting ethical research.
