Welcome to the webpage of the graduate school "clocks"!
Biological processes are coordinated in time and space in a very precise manner. The field of Chronobiology examins biological oscillators, that generate endogenous rhythms and control a multitude of biological processes, like activity rhythms, cell division, rhythms in protein expression or physiological rhythms.
Since 2017 PhD students of different departments research various chronobiological topics at the University of Kassel. Interdisciplinary cooperation is a main goal, and so groups from the instituts of biology, chemistry, physics and electrical engineering are involved in the graduate school.
