Lecture in German


Smells are present at many places – in the city, at home, in nature. All odors, be it the aroma of your favorite dish, the smell in the subway, or the scent of roses, have one thing in common: they are conveyed by small, light molecules eliciting the respective odor. We humans also contribute to the odor landscape that surrounds us: our body odors blend with other smells, such as, e.g., the smell of the clothes we wear. Sometimes, we even deliberately influence our personal smell signature – e.g., through cosmetics or perfumes.

It is a highly topical scientific endeavor to understand how individual physiological variables shape the molecular composition of body odors. Current research in olfaction furthermore deals with the psychological and physiological processes that happen when we perceive odors.

In her lecture “Smells of this World – Insights into Smell Research,” Helene Loos, researcher at the Chair of Aroma and Smell Research at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, will talk about the molecular principles of olfaction and the physiological effects of odors.

The lecture is related to the exhibition “Hyperdrüse” by the artist Anna Virnich, which will be on display at the Schering Stiftung from September 13 to November 25, 2019.

The lecture is part of Berlin Science Week 2019.

Die Referentin 

Helene Loos

Research Group Leader at the Chair for Aroma and Odour Research at FAU Erlangen-Nuremberg

Helene Loos studied food technology at the University of Hohenheim and obtained her doctorate in food chemistry at the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU). She is an independent research group leader at the Chair of Aroma and Smell Research at FAU, and at Fraunhofer IVV, Freising, and takes an active role in the Campus of the Senses Initiative. One of her research interests is to optimize peripheral physiological measures to infer on psychological processes of odour perception. Furthermore, in the framework of an Emerging Fields Initiative project having started in April 2019, Helene Loos and colleagues aim at establishing a methodological platform to study the chemical and biological principles of body odour, and its role in human chemical communication.
