Danielle Reed



Who is Danielle Reed?

Dr. Danielle R. Reed is a geneticist currently working at the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She is most notable for her papers regarding genetic variation in taste and obesity in mice and humans. Her seminal studies on the genetics of bitter taste perception led to identification of a critical region of human Chromosome 5p15 whose variation correlated with a person's ability to taste the bitterness of PROP. This finding ultimately led to the discovery by Adler and co-workers of a family of bitter taste receptors located within this critical region of the chromosome. In 2008, Reed received the IFF Award For Outstanding Research On The Molecular Basis Of Taste in recognition of her contributions to the field, and delivered the IFF Lecture at the 2008 ACHemS meeting.
