A grant to study sense of smell

A SISSA researcher has earned a European research grant

Studying the molecular mechanisms of olfaction and understanding why certain proteins useful for the tactile system are also found in olfactive neurons. These are the aims of Simone Pifferi, a researcher at the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) who has just earned the Marie Curie Career Integration Grant, a European scholarship that will enable him to pursue his studies in Italy.
