The Rhinology and Olfactology Research Group at Norwich Medical School is a diverse group of clinicians, statisticians and allied health professionals at various stages of training, working in variety of settings with a joint aim of furthering understanding of ENT disease. Beyond the University of East Anglia, we collaborate with research teams both across the UK and internationally. 

Under the direction of lead Prof Carl Philpott, our group is interested in researching smell and taste disorders including symptoms of anosmia, parosmia and phantosmia and parageusia.

Details of our past and current projects can be found under the Research option on the top right hand menu.

The Smell and Taste Clinic

The Smell & Taste Clinic at the James Paget University Hospital was established in October 2010 as the first of its kind in the UK. It has now seen over 1000 patients from around the UK. It provides a unique opportunity to research issues related to olfactory disorders and to recruit patients to current studies. Patients seeking referral to the Smell & Taste Clinic should contact their GP.
