Description of Research Expertise

Our laboratory researches the mammalian circadian clock, which is responsible for regulating daily rhythms of physiology and behavior in mammals. We use systems biology approaches, leveraging genomic and computational tools to identify new clock genes and understand how the clock keeps time. These findings inform the development of new methods and techniques that can be applied to many other areas of biology. Additionally, we collaborate with clinicians to translate our research into practical applications for human health and disease. Overall, our goal is to gain a comprehensive understanding of the circadian clock and its impact on physiology and behavior, and to use this knowledge to improve human health and wellbeing.
