Neuroscience of Sleep and Circadian Rhythms
Our aim is to understand the specific mechanisms that give rise to SCRD in neuropsychiatric disease. Our laboratory-based team of circadian and sleep biologists, behavioural scientists and pharmacologists will address this issue by characterising the genetic, cellular, anatomical and physiological mechanisms underlying SCRD.
By understanding how these processes correspond to those involved in neuropsychiatric disease we can begin to develop new treatments for these conditions. We are working closely with clinical researchers to ensure our findings can be translated effectively from laboratory to clinic, providing new drugs and treatments for SCRD and neuropsychiatric illness.
