Our research is focused on the interplay between our intricate internal timing system and diseases as well as their treatment.
Biological clocks are in all cells of our body. They modulate most behaviors and physiological processes in our bodies. For example, they determine when we are active and when we rest, but also that we have highest blood pressure just before we wake up. Understanding - on a mechanistic level - how clock disruption can lead to and influence disease progression and treatment is the main focus. The perspective of his work include to improve already existing treatments and to aid in the development of new drugs.
