Come hear about Dr Michael Hastings’ search for a molecular genetic explanation for one of the most conserved and ancient forms of behaviour-circadian timing.

Dr Hastings is the Joint Head of Neurobiology at the University of Cambridge and is a group leader at the MRC -LMB. His group investigates the molecular machinery underlying circadian rhythm, and its relevance to neurological disease. Circadian rhythms exist in all organisms across the tree of life, and in humans are most evident in the daily sleep/wake cycle. Dr Hastings focuses specifically on how the central circadian ‘pacemaker’ in the hypothalamus keeps time and coordinates the rest of the ‘clocks’ distributed throughout the body.
