Upcoming Chronobiology Schools
2019 Latin American Chronobiology/Sleep School
A Latin American Chronobiology/Sleep school will be held in Uruguay in 2019 just before the Latin American Symposium. Information and registration here.
2019 European Chronobiology “Summer” School
This year’s summer school on chronobiology will be held on November 9 – 16 in Munich, Germany. The course will cover the basic principles of chronobiology, the molecular mechanisms, translational research, and seasonal rhythms, from microbes to humans. More information & registration here.
2020 North American Chronobiology Summer School
Plans are being made for a North American Chronobiology Summer School in Gainesville, FL, just prior to our SRBR conference. Hold the date: May 23 – 29. We will post more information soon!
Many recurring chronobiology meetings start off with a trainee day, specifically targeted to students and trainees that are new to the field of chronobiology. The includes the biennial meetings of the SRBR, EBRS, and GRS Chronobiology.
Coursera course – Circadian clocks: how rhythms structure life
A free online course that you can follow at your own pace covering the basics of chronobiology developed by researchers at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in München. The material includes video lectures, reading material, and exercises. You can find the course and register here.
The BioClock Studio is an initiative from the Center for Circadian Biology at UC San Diego and contains educational material on chronobiology developed by undergraduate students. The material includes tutorials, videos, infographics and games that can be freely explored here.
Open data sources for undergraduate projects
A collection of research tools related to biological rhythms that can be freely used for undergraduate research projects can be found here.
iBiology lectures on circadian rhythms
iBiology’s mission is to convey the excitement of modern biology and the process by which scientific discoveries are made in the form of open-access free videos. Several lectures are available covering circadian rhythms, each of them given by leading scientists in the field of chronobiology. Check them out here.
SRBR YouTube channel
The SRBR YouTube channel contains a series of videos about biological rhythms and the scientists that study these rhythms, including a recording of the lectures given by the Nobel prize winners at the 2018 SRBR meeting.
Teaching video on biological rhythms
Dr. Eric Bittman from the University of Massachusetts has recorded a lecture covering the basics of biological rhythms, which is freely available on the SRBR website here.
