A key part of the NRT @ UMN training program is supporting the sensory science research conducted by our trainees. On this page, you can find a list of peer-reviewed publications authored by NRT trainees and supported by NRT funding, in chronological order. If you find a paper you are interested in reading, you can often access a copy for free by either:
