Hi Dr. Callewaert! My name is Eric, and I am a 19 year old Asian American struggling with "body odor." I have been keeping up to date with current research on body odor, and recently I came across your TED talk presentation which I thought was really interesting. This topic of research is dear to my heart because I could not remember a time when I truly had a neutral body odor. I believe this is because I am a profound sweater as well. I have tried enormous ways to combat my odor, from using various deodorants, changing my diet, showering more often, etc. Unfortunately, nothing has worked out for me! I am also a current Sophomore student in a 7-year pharmacy program in Missouri and highly exposed to many pharmacy-related research opportunities here. However, the only research I would like to perform and/ or would like to get involved in is your particular research on body odor. There is very little research on body odor in the United States. I was wondering if you currently looking for any research assistants or participants? It would be a huge privilege to get involved in this research. Please contact me with any comments, questions, and/or adivce. I really appreicate it!

Hey Eric, thanks for the kind comments. Feels good to read it :-) Indeed, very few research occurs in the field of body odor, which is a pity. It would be great to get in touch, but there are some major constraints, one of which is the location: I'm based in Belgium; and two is funding: finding decent funding for the research is always a difficult task... Best, Chris
