Clocks and Sleep Club is a journal club at Washington University that discusses recent advances in the study of biological timing and sleep. Monthly meetings are coordinated by the labs of Erik Herzog and Paul Taghert.

The Schedule

Labs working on biological rhythms include:

  • Erik Herzog. Molecules, cells and circuits of mammalian circadian timing.
  • Paul Taghert. Molecules, cells and circuits of insect circadian timing.
  • Jeff Haspel. Circadian modulation of and by endotoxemia.
  • David Holtzman. The role of normal and disrupted daily rhythms in amyloid beta production and Alzheimer’s Disease progression and therapies.
  • Michael Hughes. Daily regulation of gene expression.
  • Shin-Ichiro Imai.  Epigenetics of circadian timing and aging.
  • István Kiss. Coupled oscillator behavior in biological and electrochemical systems.
  • Erik Musiek. Circadian regulation of oxidative stress in the brain.
  • Jeanne Nerbonne.  Circadian regulation of excitability and channel biology.
  • Dmitri Nusinow. Circadian regulation of physiology and development in plants.
  • Josh Rubin. Circadian regulation and therapy in glioblastoma.
  • Paul Shaw.  Genetics and benefits of sleep.
