The 2019 Chappel Memorial Lecture presents Dr. John Hogenesch, Ohio Eminent Scholar and Professor of Pediatrics at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center in the Divisions of Human Genetics and Immunobiology.
The Hogenesch lab has led in research into the transcriptional outputs of the clock in animal models and humans. This work is leading to a wealth of new opportunities in circadian medicine and has spurred community contributions, such as the public databases the Gene Atlas and Gene Wiki, CircaDB, and algorithms, including JTK, PSEA, MetaCycle, and CYCLOPS.
The Chappel Memorial Lecture was established in 1988 through an endowment by Dr. Clifford Chappel. Since that time, internationally renowned researchers have been invited to the University of Guelph to summarize their research and career progression to inspire those engaged in, or considering, graduate studies in biomedical research.
