May 2017 – Steve Liberles

Dr. Liberles is a Professor of Cell Biology at Harvard University. His lab is interested in understanding how the brain processes external sensory and internal homeostatic signals to initiate behavioral and physiological responses. They study how our senses of smell and taste process different environmental cues (like pheromones, food cues, predator odors) to elicit innate mating, foraging, and avoidance responses. In recent efforts, they are also investigating internal sensory modalities of the vagus nerve.
