Under the direction of Professor Thomas Hummel, the Center conducts fundamental and clinical research on diagnosis, consequences and treatments of anosmia.


University of Florida Center for Smell and Taste

Located at the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL, USA, the UFCST is a University-
wide center that coordinates and promotes basic and applied research and education in taste and smell across traditional academic boundaries. UFCST scientists are actively pursuing new strategies to diagnose and treat smell and taste disorders. From creating new ways to measure chemosensory abilities in the clinic to developing novel gene-therapies for rescuing congenital anosmias, the UFCST is at the forefront of efforts to help improve the lives of those with chemosensory disorders.

Ede/Wageningen Smell and Taste Center

Wageningen University and Hospital Gelderse Vallei joined their expertise with respect to smell, taste and health care to open the first Smell and taste centre in The Netherlands. The centre combines high quality health care with excellent scientific research. Patients undergo an extensive clinical examination protocol for a proper diagnosis and prognosis, and where possible, treatment. Besides clinical care, the information gathered from these patients leads to innovative scientific research, that may in turn feed back into the clinic, and gives us tools to come up with treatments.
