Congratulations Dr. Chao Xie on successfully defending your doctoral dissertation! He has been an invaluable part of the lab for the last five years. He contributed both scientifically and to the overall collaborative and supportive atmosphere of the lab. We are excited to have Dr. Xie for another year in the lab as a post-doctoral fellow!

It was incredible attending Smell and Taste 2019, a conference through UF Center of Smell and Taste. We met so many wonderful people with smell and taste disorders who courageously shared their stories. Above is an image with Jill who traveled all the way from New Zealand! We are all so profoundly inspired and excited to get back to trying to work on a cure!
