Sleep, Circadian Rhythms, & the NIH

The fields of sleep and circadian rhythms are poised to impact human health and disease, as evidenced by recent workshops organized by various NIH institutes. These workshops focused on the importance of circadian rhythm regulation and dysregulation (e.g., misalignment of circadian rhythms with the external environment or within the internal organismal environment) for the future of medicine. CSCB researchers were participants at the following NIH workshops:
