Dr. Peter Mombaerts works on the neurobiology of smell in mice at Max Planck Research Unit of Neurogenetics in Frankfurt, Germany. Among his research interests are the difficult questions of how each olfactory sensory neuron in the mouse manages to express just one odorant receptor gene from the repertoire of 1,200, and how it manages to project its axon to the correct site in the brain.
