Philadelphia-based Monell Chemical Senses Center, a non-profit research institute studying taste, smell and chemosensory mouthfeel, received a significant contribution from Stephen and Arnold Manheimer to honor their late father, industry leader Edwin J. Manheimer. The gift supports Monell’s current $10.9 million capital campaign to raise funds for laboratory expansion, including a recently opened molecular biology wing. In recognition of the Manheimer’s contribution, an office in the new space will be dedicated to Edwin Manheimer.
“We’re very grateful for the Manheimer’s generous contribution,” said Gary K. Beauchamp, center president and director. “We are proud to help honor Edwin Manheimer and appreciative of the family’s long-time support of Monell.”
The fundraising efforts and new facilities will enhance the ability of Monell’s team of collaborative scientists to conduct chemosensory research.
