Chronobiology (GRS)
Gordon Research Seminar

Circadian Regulation Across Physiological Systems, Lifespan and Pathological Conditions


July 15-16, 2017


Stoweflake Conference Center
Stowe, VT


Michael Tackenberg & Clark J. Rosensweig

Meeting Description

The Gordon Research Seminar on Chronobiology is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.

The focus of this meeting is the physiology of circadian systems across multiple species, including how these rhythms change over time and how their dysfunction contributes to disease.
