Our goals are:
  • To promote research and graduate education in various aspects of chemical ecology and chemical communication
  • To encourage interdisciplinary research in these areas, involving the scientists with diverse expertise, ranging from bioanalytical and biochemistry, neurobiology, reproductive physiology and behavioral science.
  • To promote research contacts with different laboratories at the national and international levels. While the current emphasis is primarily on the mammalian systems (rodents), projects involving additional species such as birds, lizards and insects have been underway.
