CU Boulder is leading a groundbreaking new international research network dubbed Odor2Action through the College of Engineering and Applied Science. The work is aimed at understanding how animals use information from odors in their environment to guide behavior and has far-ranging implications for our understanding of the human brain. The research is part of the Next Generation Networks for Neuroscience (NeuroNex) Program. And over the next five years 16 scientists from 16 prestigious institutions around the world will work together through the network. The project is funded by a $20.2 million joint award from the National Science Foundation, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and the UK Research and Innovation Medical Research Council.
