Smell loss can be devastating to quality of life.
SNOT FORCE researchers have identified significant associations of smell loss with COVID-19, discovering early on how people performed online search queries for smell loss even before smell loss became a known symptom of COVID-19. SNOT FORCE member, Dr. Elisa Illing, was recently interviewed for her expertise in this area of research.
