Luis Saraiva, Ph.D., Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center
Hundreds of receptors in our nose can detect thousands of odors with each sniff. But how do we make sense of the “smelly” world that surrounds us? At the February Queen Anne Science Café, join the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center's Luis Saraiva, Ph.D., to explore the mechanisms and complexities behind the sense of smell and how the brain makes sense of it all.
