Big Circadian Changes at UVA

One chronobiological pioneer is leaving and another one is coming in. Gene Block is going to UCLA and Joe Takahashi is leaving Northwestern (What are Fred Turek and others going to do there without him? What happens to the Howard Hughes institute?) and coming in to head the new Center for Circadian and Systems Biology. A very interesting game of musical chairs. Stay tuned.

    That sucks!! I’m probably headed to NU next year for a Master’s in Neurobiology and I was hoping to catch a glimpse of Takahashi. I was really interested in his work with Clock mutants and bipolar disorder.
    Oh well, Turek is doing interesting stuff as well. I like his work on obesity.
