It combines the investigative efforts from the University of Virginia, Northwestern University and Rockefeller University to study various aspects of biological timing. The Center studies the internal timing mechanisms which control cycles of sleep and waking, hormone pulsatility, neuronal excitability and reproductive rhythmicity. Investigators are involved with research from behavioral testing to molecular genetics.
