Linda Bartoshuk

Linda May Bartoshuk (born 1938)[1] is an American psychologist. She is a Presidential Endowed Professor of Community Dentistry and Behavioral Science at the University of Florida. She is an internationally known researcher specializing in the chemical senses of taste and smell.


Bartoshuk grew up in Aberdeen, South Dakota.[2] She received her B.A. from Carleton College and her PhD from Brown University.[3] Her research explores the genetic variations in taste perception and how taste perception affects overall health. Bartoshuk was the first to discover that burning mouth syndrome, a condition predominantly experienced by postmenopausal women, is caused by damage to the taste buds at the front of the tongue and is not a psychosomatic condition. She was employed at Yale University prior to accepting a position at the University of Florida in 2005. She was elected a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1995.[1] In 2003, she was elected to the National Academy of Sciences.[2]
