about this event

Circadian body clocks: genes, cells and circuits that set the tempo to our lives.

Circadian clocks are the biological time-keepers that control the daily rhythms of our lives, the most obvious rhythm being the cycle of sleep and wakefulness.  Behind this dramatic behavioural cycle, however, lies a host of physiological and metabolic rhythms that adapt us to the 24 hour solar and social world.

Our bodies operate as 24-hour machines.  This presentation will review recent advances in our understanding of the genetic, molecular and cellular bases of the circadian clock system.  It will then consider the implications of this new knowledge for healthy living and for medicine.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE LECTURE AND DINNER ARE NOW FULLY BOOKED.  IF YOU WISH TO ADD YOUR NAME TO THE WAITING LIST, PLEASE CONTACT joanna.rose@rsm.ac.uk
