Episode Description:

Olfactory technology is trying to do with the sense of smell what we can already do with the senses of sight and hearing. Just as we can record pictures and sounds by mechanical means, store them digitally in computers, and reproduce them at will, a group of scientists is trying to do the same thing with smells. This episode has two guests. Chris Hanson is Founder and President of Aromyx, Inc., a leader in olfactory technology. He has over 20 years experience working with early stage technologies, and a successful track record of bringing new technologies to market. Luke Schneider is a board member of Aromyx, as well as founder of Target Discovery, Inc., a cancer diagnostics company. Previously, he did extensive research in inhalation therapy at SRI International, and his work forms an integral part of the Aromyx technology. We discuss the sense of smell itself, the technology of recording and replicating aromas, the current state of the art, and the many possible uses of this new science. Martin Wasserman hosts.
