Biological rhythms are relevant for almost every aspect of an organism’s life, from adapting physiology to the night-and-day cycle of the environment to synchronizing social behavior with other organisms. In 2017 the Nobel Prize in Medicine was awarded to Jeff Hall, Michael Rosbash and Michael Young for their groundbreaking contribution to the understanding of the cellular circadian clock. Since then, research in chronobiology has seen an astonishing renaissance. This one-day symposium highlights the translational aspects of chronobiology research, from developing drugs that target the biological clock for treating sleep and mood disorders to optimizing efficacy of drugs by timing administration in alignment with circadian rhythm; from uncovering the genetic basis for different chronotypes to understanding the impact of “metabolic jetlag” and other circadian dysfunction on the immune system, metabolic syndrome and neurodegenerative disease. Register for a public panel discussion on Your Internal Clock and Your Health to learn how your internal clock works and how it affects your health, mood, and productivity.
