Dr. Joseph G. Brand is a biologist currently at Monell Chemical Senses Center. In 1985, Dr. Brand discovered that the substance amiloride is an inhibitor of sodium when present in the epithelia of rats. Subsequently in 2005, Dr. Brand and Dr. Xia Li discovered that cats did not have a functioning sweet taste receptor, because it was made obsolete by evolution.
