Christian Doppler Laboratory for taste research


Head: Senior Scientist Barbara Lieder, PhD

Excessive consumption of sugar is a major cause of the rising prevalence of overweight. This CD laboratory researches alternative sweeteners, their taste profile and their effect on metabolism.

Using a combined approach of sensory, computer-aided and molecular biological methods as well as human studies, the CD-Laboratory for Taste Research aims to establish a structure-activity relationship for substances relevant to the perception of sweetness and to investigate their effects on different cell systems beyond the perception of sweetness.
