(Re)new ECRO membership
or register for the ECRO congress

Welcome to the ECRO Website

The  XXVI ECRO Congress will be held in Athens, Greece between 7-10 September 2016. Do not forget to register!

We are sorry to inform the ECRO community that Dr Martine Cattarelli (France) recently passed away. Martine has been a very active member since the beginning of ECRO . As General Secretary (she has left in 2002) she also largely contributed to the success of our Association.  Her scientific contributions significantly improved our understanding of the physiological basis of the olfactory memory, the odor-taste aversion congruence and the role of the piriform cortex. She will be sorely missed by the community.

The goal of ECRO is to promote fundamental and applied research in chemosensory science especially olfaction and taste in vertebrates and invertebrates. ECRO organizes a annual congress to that end.  ECRO is financed by individual member subscriptions and by donations from industry and research institutions. To facilitate participation of younger scientists ECRO supports travel grants for students. We invite your applications for grants.

The ECRO website is a pathway between academic researchers, industry, scientists and students. Information about active researchers in chemosensory science can be found in our member list. Students and postdoc searching for a laboratory to study olfaction and taste can get valuable information in the Congress Abstracts or the Member's list.

ECRO encourages members to organise minisymposia on specific topics for brainstorming discussions.
