First NOSE scientific symposium, 15 Nov, Utrecht

November 15

We are excited to announce our first NOSE symposium! With a range of high-level speakers from various scientific disciplines, Including Peter de Jong (Groningen), Andrea Evers (Leiden), Rob Holland (Nijmegen), Wilbert Boek (Ede), as well as members from our own NOSE community.

The theme of the meeting broadly revolves around the basic functions of human olfaction (approach/avoidance) in terms of eating behavior and health, (social) communication, and warning and safety.

With this first scientific meeting, we would like to open dialogue and exchange perspectives with scientists who are interested in human olfaction in the Netherlands.

 

Date and location: Wednesday 15 Nov, Boothzaal, Utrecht University, Utrecht.
