Introduction to Circadian Biology and Medicine
May 22 @ 3:00 pm - May 26 @ 7:00 pm CEST
Over the last few decades, our understanding has advanced rapidly about a subject that as recently as 50 years ago was a mystery: the existence and function of innate biological mechanisms for recognizing the local time of day and for measuring the passage of time (endogenous circadian “clocks”). While the cognitive, medical, and social impact of daily timing is part of everyone’s life experience, for most biomedical investigators and practitioners there remains a gap in their fundamental and working knowledge of the field.
The advanced training in Introduction to Circadian Biology and Medicine offered by the Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade de Lisboa, will be held from 22 to 26 May 2023 from 15:00 to 19:00 WEST.
This course aims to provide basic and clinical knowledge in biological rhythms for application in research and clinical practice.
This course is designed for a wide range of learners seeking a foundation of core principles and practical lessons in health & well-being, including researchers and clinicians pursuing an expert preparation for the practice of circadian biology in the classroom, laboratory, hospital, and clinic.
Attendance at the course will also be possible remotely, for international and external students from other universities.
Applications Deadline: Until 7 May 2023
