International conference to release new findings on smell and taste
Date:7/15/2008

San Francisco - The International Symposium on Smell and Taste will be held at the Hyatt Embarcadero, in San Francisco July 21-26. Over 1,000 scientists will gather to present new information on the role of smell and taste in disease, nutrition and social interactions in humans as well as animals. Smell and taste play essential roles in our daily lives. These chemical senses serve as important warning systems, alerting us to the presence of potentially harmful situations or substances, including gas leaks, smoke, and spoiled food. Flavors and fragrances are also important in determining what foods we eat and the commercial products we use. The pleasures derived from eating are mainly based on the chemical senses. Thousands of Americans experience loss of smell or taste each year resulting from head trauma, sinus disease, normal aging and neurological disorders, such as brain injury, stroke and Alzheimer's disease. By providing a better understanding of the function of chemosensory systems, scientific and biomedical research is leading to improvements in the diagnoses and treatment of smell and taste disorders.

Among those contributing to advancements are members of the Association for Chemoreception Sciences (http://www.achems.org), which will be holding its 30th annual meeting in conjunction with the XV International Symposium on Olfaction and Taste (ISOT; http://www.achems.org/i4a/pages/index.cfm?pageid=3493). During AChemS/ISOT, scientists from around the world are presenting their latest research findings on topics ranging from molecular biology to the clinical diagnosis and treatment of smell and taste disorders.

Additionally, there will be 16 special-subject symposia, lectures and workshops. Throughout the six-day meeting there will be nearly 700 research presentations by scientists from around the world.
