Linda Barlow, from the University of Colorado, School of Medicine,in Aurora (CO), US, is interested in developmental neurobiology, in particular in the patterning and formation of sensory organs. She is trying to answer three fundamental questions: How is the pattern and number of taste buds established during embryonic development? Once established, how are taste bud cells continually renewed in adults? And how do cancer therapies cause taste dysfunction?

She has been invited by Berta Alsina (UPF).
