Internal organs are constantly exchanging signals, and can undergo profound anatomical and functional changes in response to them, even in fully developed organisms. Such organ plasticity results from a need to integrate and respond to both nutritional information and internal state, and is key to maintaining homeostasis and driving adaptive changes.

Charles Zuker. Columbia University

Dr. Charles Zuker has made significant contributions to three major sensory transduction systems – vision, mechanosensation and taste. His lab has used molecular, genetic and physiological approaches to investigate the biology of sensory transduction mechanisms in photoreceptors, mechanoreceptors and taste receptors. His work on mammalian taste has completely transformed our understanding of taste from the identification and function of taste…
