[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Aims and Objectives

The Australasian Chronobiology Society (ACS) was founded in early 2004, and aims to generate and discuss research in all areas of Chronobiology, including both animal and human work to examine specific areas such as sleep and circadian biology in Australia and New Zealand.

Research conducted by ACS members encompasses human, animal and genetic work, and includes:

  • definition of mechanisms by which environment and internal biological timing systems together modulate cellular functions
  • elucidation of the mechanisms by which circadian rhythm disruption alters human organ functions
  • identification of the mechanisms by which nocturnal activity/eating increases risk of diseases such as metabolic syndrome and cancer
  • identification of potential opportunities for intervention to eliminate or reduce the risk of circadian rhythm disruption
