  • Working Out Treatment Timing

    Mar 25 | Clinical Research News | People who have erratic schedules seem to suffer more with many diseases, including certain cancers, and women with irregular sleep-wake patterns are also at heightened risk for preterm birth, says Erik Herzog, a neuroscientist and professor at Washington University as well as president of the Society for Research on Biological Rhythms (SRBR). Working with OB-GYN researchers at Washington University, his lab found similar and reliable changes in the daily rhythms of both women and mice during pregnancy. More
  • Researchers Puzzling Over The Body’s Rhythmicity

    Mar 24 | Clinical Research News | Circadian medicine gained newfound attention in 2017 when three scientists were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine for their discovery of the molecular mechanisms controlling how time is measured in biological systems. But the backstory on the field goes back decades, including the 1997 discovery and cloning of the first circadian clock gene in mammals. More
  • Clinical Data Sharing for AI: Proposed Framework Could Rouse Debate

    Mar 24 | Clinical Research News | A group of doctors from Stanford University has proposed a framework for sharing clinical data for artificial intelligence (AI) that could set off a firestorm of debate about who truly owns medical data, ethical obligations to share it, and how to properly police researchers who use it. On the other hand, the envisioned approach has parallels to the open science tactics currently being uniformly deployed to battle the COVID-19 pandemic. More
