CCB Symposium: From Cells to Clinic

February 15-17, 2017

UCSD's Center for Circadian Biology (CCB) will host its 8th Annual Circadian Biology Symposium to be held at the Sanford Consortium Auditorium, February 15-17, 2017. The theme for the symposium is "From Cells to Clinic."

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 41 PIs here in the CCB and their research personnel, and plan to accommodate a limited number of 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 the UCSD, 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 UCSD.

Parking Information:

Sanford Consortium's East parking lot costs $1 per hour or $8 for all day. Instructions: take note of the number on your parking space and find the pay station near the bottom of the outdoor stairway near the Sanford building entrance. The machine accepts Visa, MC, Amex, and cash ($1 or $5 but will not give change). Important note to UCSD permit holders: If you have a UCSD permit and park in this lot, remove your UCSD parking permit from view or you will receive a parking citation. Also DO NOT park in the west lot. Although it appears that UCSD permits are allowed, they are not. The employees of Sanford have an additional sticker; without it you will receive a parking citation.
