SRBR 2022 Biennial Conference

SRBR 2022 Overview


The Society of Research on Biological Rhythms is pleased to announce the 2022 Biennial Conference will be hosted in-person at Omni Amelia Island Resort in beautiful Amelia Island, Florida!

The theme of the 2022 meeting reflects the extent to which biological clocks impact essentially all aspects of ecology, physiology, and disease in a wide variety of species and will highlight the relevance of biological clocks to both science and society. In recent years, discoveries regarding the role that biological clocks play in human health have exploded, revealing the importance of such clocks for sleep, metabolism, cardiovascular disease, mental health, aging, and cancer. We have reached an exciting time when discoveries first reported at previous SRBR meetings are being applied to the understanding and treatment of human disease and the planning of heathier communities.

In addition to our extensive scientific program, the SRBR meeting holds a Trainee Professional Development Day the day before start of the meeting, which provides lectures on topics ranging from the conceptual foundations of the study of biological rhythms, new research tools in chronobiology, to mentoring and grant writing.

Don’t miss your chance to join this incredible meeting of  investigators from around the world. Register for SRBR 2022 today!

Trainee Day is currently oversubscribed. Please click here to be added to the trainee day wait list. We are very sorry about this and will try our best to accommodate everyone.
