Congratulations to Kuntol Rakshit, who just won the Judge's Choice Award for 2012 NSF IGERT Video & Poster Competition on June 1st. He presented his current research on The circadian clock and its neuro-protective role during aging (click for the video or in IGERT Media)
New research at Oregon State University provides evidence for the first time that disruption of circadian rhythms – the biological “clocks” found in many animals – can clearly cause accelerated neurodegeneration, loss of motor function and premature death.
For research details: Disruption of body clock causes neuro-degeneration and early death
Share our IGERT trainees and associates' passion of research (see details in IGERT Presentations)!
