The Association for Chemoreception Sciences (AChemS) is an international association that advances understanding of the senses of taste and smell.

We encourage basic, clinical, and applied research in the chemical senses (gustation, olfaction and trigeminal sensation). To this end, we promote an appreciation of chemosensory research, represent the interests of the chemosensory research community, and serve as a resource for those requiring chemosensory expertise.
