Circadian rhythms: when our biological clocks go bad ...


Carrie Partch - Associate Professor, Chemistry and Biochemistry


On a deep biological level, our lives are intimately tied to Earth’s 24-hour solar cycle. Molecular clocks in our cells coordinate physiology and behavior on a circadian basis, using light to align us with the solar day. This year's Nobel Prize in Medicine recognized the importance of our internal clock. Carrie Partch’s lab at UC Santa Cruz studies how molecular clocks measure time and use it to control biology. Disruption of circadian rhythms can lead to metabolic disorders, cardiovascular disease, and cancer.
