Title Modeling the Physiology of Circadian Timekeeping.
Publication Date Aug 2011
Media Count 5p
Personal Author D. Forger
Abstract This young investigator award from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research to Daniel Forger played a pivotal role in his career. Many discoveries were made and are described in over 10 published papers or manuscripts in preparation. Some research highlights include: 1) discovering that timekeeping in mammals is more complex than originally thought, 2) discovering on how to optimally stimulate neuronal (and in particular the circadian) systems and 3) mathematical methods for studying biological clocks. Forger remains very grateful to the AFOSR for the opportunity to perform this work.
