ESRA Rehovot 'Biological Clocks and Daily Rhythms' with Rona Aviram

ESRA Rehovot Branch

A talk by Rona Aviram
"It Must be Six O’Clock Somewhere: Biological Clocks and Daily Rhythms‎"

Rona, a PhD student in Prof. Gad Asher’s lab in the Biomolecular Sciences Department of the ‎Weizmann Institute, is trying to elucidate a biological function that we all share: time-keeping. ‎

Far from being a simplistic watch, nearly all organisms harbor intricate clock mechanisms that ‎allow for coupling of physiology and behavior with the external time. Constantly ticking from the ‎cellular level to the organism level, our biological clocks serve as a great system to test the size ‎and limits of countless biological processes. Advancing our knowledge of those issues is key for ‎improvement of life quality and longevity.‎
