Research Interests:

  • De-orphanisation of all human odorant receptors
  • Food-typical key odorants, semiochemicals, and metabolites as agonists and antagonists of odorant receptors
  • Extra-nasal and extra-oral olfactory and taste receptors
  • Systems Biology of food-related adequate stimulus systems, receptors, and immune cell sub-systems
  • Cell-free chemosensory receptor sensor systems
