Title: “Genetic regulation of sleep and circadian rhythms”
Dr. Young studies circadian (~24 hour) clocks, which are endogenous mechanisms that time the recurring, daily activities observed in most organisms. Young’s research has shown how interactions among certain genes and their proteins produce molecular oscillations at the level of individual cells. These cellular clocks are active in most animal tissues and establish overt, circadian rhythms in physiology and behavior. His lab’s findings have implications for sleep and mood disorders as well as dysfunctions related to the timing of gene activities underlying visual functions, locomotion, metabolism, immunity, learning and memory
