Laurence Brown


Senior Postdoctoral Research Associate

I am an experienced neuroscientist, with a multidisciplinary skill-base.  I am currently working to Identifying genes involved in circadian function using in-house and public microarray data and developing new methods for measuring activity and behaviour. 

Across the animal and plant kingdoms the tailoring of activity to the day or night has repeatedly been shown to provide evolutionary advantages. The core components of the transcription/translation feedback-loop that comprise the clock are found in almost all cells and different stimuli can act as zeitgebers (time-givers).   The multiple 'body clocks' in different tissues are now known to be essential for many physiological processes and disruption of their rhythms is often implicated in disease.
