With research based at Aarhus University (Denmark) and clinical studies based at the Flavour Clinic, Gødstrup Regional Hospital (Denmark), we conduct a wide array of clinical and basic chemosensory research.
Explore our ongoing studies, publications, and resources within the fields of olfactory and gustatory research and testning.
In order to investigate the full spectrum of flavour research,
we combine modalities such as clinical chemosensory testing,
behavioral studies, chemistry, molecular methods, cellular methods, neuroimaging, and computational modelling.
At Flavour Institute, we aim to advance the knowledge of smell, taste, and how these merge in flavour. A loss of sensory abilities will often reduce quality of life, but may also be an earlier warning sign of psychiatric, neurologic and neurodegenerative disease. By working with all aspects of smell, taste, and flavour, we work to form a platform
for a multidisciplinary approach in research, clinical diagnostics, and treatment.
In December 2016, we opened the first out patient clinic for diagnosing and treating patients with olfactory or gustatory deficits in Denmark. In a close collaboration between clinicians and researchers, we are working improving and delivering the best possible clinical care for patients with chemosensory deficits. We have currently seen more than 2,500 patients with smell and/or taste disorders in our clinic. For patients, please go to our clinical website: here
