INNF Leads Major International Research Collaboration in the Genetic Basis of Taste Perception

Washington DC, May 8, 2008 – The International Neuroscience Network Foundation announced today the start of a major collaborative research initiative, sponsored by the Nestlé Research Center, Lausanne, Switzerland, to explore the relationship between genotype and taste perception. Participants include sites in the US and Brazil including the Instituto de Ensinoe Pequisa at the Hospital Sírio Libanês in São Paulo, Brazil, in association with the Alberto Santos Dumont Association for Research Development (AASDAP); Expression Analysis Inc, in Durham, North Carolina, USA; the Brain Mind Institute in Lausanne, Switzerland; and the Nestle Research Center also in Lausanne.

The human clinical study will provide groundbreaking information on the relationship between genotype, taste perception, and metabolism and could provide insights into future consumer products as well as personalized medicine.
