Dr. Alexander Bachmanov is a scientist and geneticist currently working at the Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. His research focuses on the genetics of taste, ingestive behavior and alcohol intake. His studies are based on genetic variation among mouse strains; he uses mice with contrasting phenotypes for genetic analyses. The goal of these analyses is to find chromosomal locations of genes involved in taste-related behavior, with an ultimate goal to identify the molecular identity of these genes using the positional cloning approach. In addition, Dr. Bachmanov uses physiological and behavioral techniques to better understand mechanisms responsible for genetic differences in taste-related behavior.

“Take the serious side of Disney, the Confucian side of Disney. Its in having taken an ethos ... where you have the values of courage and tenderness asserted in a way that everybody can understand. You have got an absolute genius there. You have got a greater correlation of nature than you have had since the time of Alexander the Great.”
