Dr. Paul Franken

Keynote Lecture:
From genome to sleep phenome and the omic dynamics in between

Paul Franken does research and teaches at the Center for Integrative Genomics, University of Lausanne, Switzerland. He obtained his PhD at the University of Groningen (The Netherlands) and has worked at the Universities of Zürich, Geneva, and Stanford. His research focuses on the genetics of sleep and the EEG and on how circadian and sleep-wake driven processes interact to shape sleep.

His work integrates multiple levels of organization from cell nucleus to behavior and brain activity, using the mouse as model species. Prof. Franken is member of the board of the Swiss Sleep Research Society (SSSSC) and co-Editor-in-Chief of “Clocks & Sleep
