To survive, animals must decide what and how much to eat. This requires integration of external information (sights, smells, tastes, textures) with internal bodily signals. Until recently, fields focused on the sensation, perception, and interpretation of external stimuli, and their ability to regulate behavior, have proceeded largely independently from those seeking to understand internal drivers of behavior. We are excited to convene experts in diverse areas of sensory biology related to eating (taste, olfaction, gut-brain signals, etc.) across various model systems with the aim of highlighting recent discoveries, bridging these fields, and fostering a multidisciplinary science of ingestion that integrates research on interoceptive and exterosensory signals.

Janelia will cover lodging and meals for all participants, and travel support is available to those in need (please indicate need in that portion of the application). Participants are expected to stay for the duration of the workshop and will also have an opportunity to extend their stay for continued discussion and collaborative time. 

The meeting will begin at 6pm ET on the first day and end by 1pm ET on the last.

Application deadline: June 24, 2024 (11:59 p.m. ET)

Please note: Because Janelia conferences are intentionally small and selective, we may not be able to accommodate all applicants. We strive for as broad a representation across labs as possible and therefore may limit participation to one person per group. Preference is given to applicants who are active researchers in the field and intend to present their work as a poster or selected talk.
