We host the Sir Jules Thorn Sleep and Circadian Neuroscience Institute. This group of scientists and doctors work on circadian timing and disease.

We are changing the way we address major challenges of the 21st century: how we treat disease, discover new medicines and handle the longer waking day. We are driving fundamental discoveries into the ancient systems that govern time in our lives.

We have a generated a wealth of fundamental science to demonstrate that circadian rhythms are embedded in all physiological systems. Now is the time to be transformative. We need to embed this knowledge in schools, health care and the business sector. 

We are raising money for:

  • An endowed chair in circadian neuroscience
