We welcome Joydeep De, CCB’s first Public Outreach fellow. He is a postdoctoral researcher in Dr. Bill Joiner’s lab at UCSD. He studies the neural circuits of sleep in the brain. If you have a new research paper published by your group and want to spread the news or want a feature written on it and/or to be publicized through the CCB Twitter handle, please contact Joydeep at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

What are Circadian Rhythms?
Circadian rhythms are biological oscillations that recur with a period of approximately one day. Health issues related to circadian rhythms include jet lag, shift work, seasonal depression, and time-of-day variations in response to medical treatments. Our Center is focused on these circadian rhythms, the underlying biological clock mechanisms that drive the rhythms, and their implications for human health and agriculture.
The CCB offers administrative support to improve the effectiveness of circadian biology research programs and to facilitate multi-investigator interactions, including:
- Support for submitting applications and administering grants that cross departmental borders, involve multiple investigators, or provide fellowship support for jointly-sponsored students and postdocs.
- Serving as a university affiliation for research personnel, such as sabbatical visitors.
- Help in identifying research funding sources and opportunities and investigating and interpreting the submission instructions to ensure a solid application.
