CCB Symposium: From Cells to Clinic

February 13-15, 2019

UC San Diego's Center for Circadian Biology (CCB) will host its 9th Annual Circadian Biology Symposium to be held at the Sanford Consortium Auditorium.

We have invited a select, stellar group of chronobiologists from around the country and beyond, and a few local colleagues, to speak at this symposium. We expect strong participation from our 51 CCB PI's and their research personnel, and plan to accommodate registrants from other institutions as well.

The aims of the conference are to:

  1. Provide participants with a comprehensive view of modern circadian biology.
  2. Exchange a broad spectrum of ideas and techniques in circadian biology.
  3. Promote interactions among the faculty and lab personnel of UC San Diego, Circadian Biology Center, the invited speakers, and other participants.
  4. Further acquaint the speakers, their groups, and other registrants with the depth and breadth of circadian biology research conducted at UC San Diego.
