Harking back to the four medieval art forms: Arithmetic, Geometry, Music, and Astronomy, this project seeks to reposition music among the sciences by bringing together composers from the Buchmann Mehta School of Music at Tel Aviv University and researchers in physics, chemistry, molecular biology and neuroscience from the Weizmann Institute of Science.
Studying the interplay between oxygen-sensing and circadian clocks has never been more exciting!
Studying various aspects of exercise physiology through the lens of circadian biology.
We employ high throughput approaches to identify oscillations in metabolite levels and metabolic pathways.
Do all peripheral clocks respond the same, or is there tissue-specificity? Do different peripheral tissues communicate time information between each other, and how?
We are looking for a) additional clock-independent rhythms; b) potential function consequences of these rhythms on the animal’s well-being; and c) mechanistic insights into the alternative oscillator clockwork.
