ALL ACADEMICS AT UCSD
SUBJECT: Establishment of the Center for Chronobiology (CCB) as an Organized Research Unit at UCSD
Following consultation with the Academic Senate and campus administrative officials, I am pleased to announce the establishment of the Center for Chronobiology as an Organized Research Unit reporting to Vice Chancellor for Research Art Ellis. Stuart Brody and Susan Golden, Professors in the Section of Molecular Biology, Division of Biological Sciences, will serve as founding co-directors.
The Center will bring together faculty from diverse disciplinary areas of the campus, including the Biological, Physical, and Social Sciences, Engineering, and the Schools of Medicine and Pharmacy. CCB will focus on questions in chronobiology - the study of biological rhythms - found at all levels of biological complexity and central to the organization of life.
Research in the Center will cluster around four research areas including molecular clock mechanisms/gene-protein networks; oscillator networks; metabolism and physiology; and sleep and behavior. The Center will promote collaborations that bridge levels of analysis to establish new approaches to understanding biological rhythms.
Membership in the Center is open to all interested faculty members and research scientists/scholars. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Professors Brody or Golden at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com
