Today marks the one year anniversary of the iHCDP launch on 1st September 2021. We're looking forward to even more research and collaboration next year!
To catalyse any means necessary for the use of (day-)light to improve general health, quality of life and living conditions across the life span, based on biological, psychological and societal needs. For this purpose, the impact of daylight will be systematically assessed, and new tools, applications will be validated and implemented in the fields of vision science and ophthalmology, healthy ageing and clinical practice.
We are very excited to share a new Outlook article published in Nature, "Can resetting the body clock help with depression?", which explores the link between circadian and mental health.(more…)
Congratulations to Corrado Garbazza for winning this year's Society for Research on Biological Rhythms Merit Award for his talk "Bright Light Therapy is Effective and Safe in Treating Perinatal Depression: A Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Trial" at the SRBR 2022 Conference in Amelia Island, Florida!(more…)
An MD-PhD position is available within the iHCDP. For details, please see the advertisement below:(more…)
The iHCDP was well represented at this year's SLTBR Conference. The 33rd Annual Meeting of the Society for Light Treatment and Biological Rhythms was held in Manchester from 23 - 25 June 2022, with the theme "Light and the Circadian Clock - from Bench to Bedside".(more…)
How does light influence the circadian clock, sleep and health? On 20th and 21st May 2022 we will accompany the day with lectures and light measurements at the St. Margarethen Observatory in Basel.(more…)
On 21st March 2022, we welcomed members of the advisory board to our online launch event. Presentations of the three module research plans were followed by fruitful discussion. We thank all members of the advisory board for their useful input!(more…)
