Event Description

Full Description:
Behind an apparent simplicity, bitter taste has been unfolding as one of the most fascinating and complex biological discoveries over the last 15 years relevant to nutrition and health. Plants and plant-eaters seem to have developed a co-evolutionary strategy based on bitterness. However, the most compelling story about the function of bitter taste receptors is yet to be fully uncovered and will relate to bitter sensing in internal organs such as the heart or the immune system.
