JBC Organized Workshop on Plasticity in Circadian Rhythms and Sleep


Monday, February 12, 2018 (All day)


Edmond Safra Campus, Givat Ram Jerusalem. Silberman Building, 3rd wing 4th floor (Map attached)
on February 12, 2018, this conference took place on the Givat Ram campus of HUJI. The workshop focused on the importance of circadian clocks for understanding how organisms function, which was acknowledged this year with the award of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. This multidisciplinary workshop covered recent advances in research on plasticity in circadian rhythms and sleep in insects, fishes, birds, and mammals, both in the laboratory and in the field.
