What is chronobiology?
Chronobiology is the study of periodic phenomena in living organisms. These biological rhythms are found in almost all species and are believed to be evolutionary adaptations to cyclical variations of the environment. Fundamental research in chronobiology examines the mechanisms of the biological clocks and their interactions with other physiological systems. Translational research seeks to adapt this knowledge into new and innovative clinical treatments. Both areas incorporate ideas from a broad range of other scientific field such as physiology, genetic, molecular biology, behavioural studies, neuroscience, reproductive biology, ecology, and much more.
The Canadian Society for Chronobiology is Canada's first and only association of researchers working on biological rhythms. Founded in 2013, we represent Canadian scientists and trainees working in this field, in both fundamental and clinical settings. United in our passion for chronobiology, our goal is to move the field forward by fostering interdisciplinary communication, developing and enhancing the education and training of students and researchers in this field, and educating the general public about the importance of biological rhythms.
