Ever wonder what regulates your sleep/wake cycles? Or, why you have trouble concentrating at certain times of the day? Come to the seminar on Monday, November 23rd at 4pm in RNS 310 to find out. Karla Marz from Gustavus Adolphus will present her findings on the biochemistry of the cryptochrome proteins, the cellular regulators of the circadian clock. Karla earned her PhD in biochemistry from Washington University and completed postdoctoral research at the University of Virginia. She is very interested in meeting St. Olaf students who might want to chat about circadian rhythms, graduate school in biochemistry, or life in science!

If you'd like to chat with Dr. Marz, Professor Listenberger is organizing an informal gathering prior to the seminar. Contact Prof Listenberger for details.

This seminar will count towards the Chemistry Major
