Dr. Charles Zuker is recognized for his studies on how the brain represents our sensory experiences and how it transforms reception into perception. Over the past several years, his laboratory has identified the cells and receptors mediating all five basic taste qualities, and helped uncover the logic of taste coding, both at the periphery and in the cortex. Dr. Zuker is a Professor at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, and an Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Dr. Zuker is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Medicine, and a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
