Sackler Lab Hero

Go inside The Sackler Educational Laboratory for Comparative Genomics and Human Origins to learn about the biology and evolution of humans' sense of smell through demonstrations and hands-on activities, including sending and receiving scents using a new digital device called the oPhone. Visitors will be able to try out this new technology and meet its inventors, David Edwards and Rachel Field, as well as learn about how smell is processed and perceived in humans and our primate and hominid relatives.
