“I am happy to share that NIH’s National Smell and Taste Center (NSTC), an effort led by the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders, is launching July 9! The center will advance collaboration and innovation in smell and taste research, clinical care, and education to help those with smell and taste disorders – a need that rose to national attention during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Tune in to the inaugural seminar with keynote from Dr. Thomas Hummel of University Hospital Carl Gustav Carus University Hospital Dresden. This event will be held 1-5pm ET 7/9. Details.”
