Following the success of events in 2022 and 2023, Professor Carl Philpott, Professor of Rhinology and Olfactology at the University of East Anglia, and Duncan Boak, CEO of Fifth Sense, the charity for people affected by smell and taste disorder, have organised a third symposium on smell and taste disorders.

Building on the last two events, it will focus on patient perspectives and presentations from global experts in the field of smell and taste. They include Professor Thomas Hummel, Associate Professor Matt Lechner, Professor Eric Holbrook, Professor Basile Landis, Miss Lisha McClelland, Mr Simon Gane, Dr Saber Sami and Associate Professor Iordanis Konstantinidis. Topics covered in the programme include the latest information on investigations, chemosensory testing, current and future management strategies and research priorities.

This two-day event is aimed at clinicians and researchers interested in olfaction, gustation and chemosensory disorders. In addition to lectures, there will be practical demonstrations and interactive workshops for attendees to get involved in.

The symposium will be a hybrid format, enabling attendance in person or online via Zoom. CPD points will be awarded for attendance. Lunch and refreshments will also be provided for those attending in person, with an optional course dinner on the Thursday at the George Hotel, Norwich. For delegates wishing to stay there will be a research brainstorming session – Developing PICOs from the research priorities.

Applications are open for poster presentations related to smell and taste disorders. Applicants will need to submit a 250-word abstract to k.tate@uea.ac.uk by 1 May 2024.
