We are pleased to announce that the registration for the CIIE Winter Symposium “Circadian Rhythms in Health & Disease” is now open.

This year’s CIIE symposium will bring together researchers from evolutionary biology, parasitology, immunology, and chronobiology to highlight the importance of biological rhythms, from maintaining a healthy organism to the interactions between hosts and parasites. The meeting will integrate perspectives and methods from researchers with a common interest in elucidating the roles of rhythms in diseases of modernity, exploiting rhythms for clinical benefit, and deepening our understanding of one of the
most fundamental interactions between organisms, that between hosts and parasites.

Confirmed speakers:

  • Barbara Helm, University of Glasgow
  • Roelof Hut, University of Groningen, Netherlands
  • Andrew Loudon, University of Manchester
  • Debra Skene, University of Surrey
