The Smell and Taste Center at the University of Pennsylvania was established in 1980 as the result of funding received from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, the Hoffman Fund, and other sources. It is the first clinical research center in the United States devoted to the senses of taste and smell and has achieved worldwide prominence for its research and clinical activities. In addition, the Center has plans to expand its facilities, clinical service, research programs, and staff. The Center is focused on three primary goals: to provide clinical evaluation, treatment, and counseling for affected individuals experiencing taste and smell disorders; to provide the facilities and an intellectual focus for research in both basic and applied aspects of chemoreception; and to provide training for students and doctoral level scientists and other interested medical personnel in both basic and applied aspects of chemoreception science. Foreign language translators are available from other departments at the University to speak with callers in most languages.
