This is the first post in a new series titled “Meet a chronobiologist“. These posts provide a brief look in to the work of prominent chronobiologists from their perspective.

In this inaugural video blog, we asked Allison Brager about her journey to becoming a chronobiologist, how she became involved in the COVID-19 frontlines in New York and how her background in sleep research was useful in that fight.
