Global Consortium
for Chemosensory Research

Participate in the GCCR study

We are conducting a world-wide scientific study to assess the possible relationships between respiratory illness (e.g., COVID-19, influenza or the common cold) and their effects on smell & taste

How we started

In response to anecdotal reports of the loss of smell and of taste in people who have tested positive for COVID-19, a group of international smell and taste researchers have united to study how, when and why this is happening and what it can tell us about the Coronavirus.

The GCCR will foster the advancement of chemosensory science at large, allowing the possibility to test larger samples of participants cross-culturally, strengthening the reliability and validity of chemosensory science across many domains.

Currently, the timely mission of the GCCR is to define and coordinate world-wide crowdsourced research to understand the reports of the chemosensory issues related to COVID-19. Subsequently, the establishment of this consortium.

In accomplishing this mission, the GCCR’s primary roles are to work cooperatively with its members to:
