Center for Clinical Chronobiology


Center for Clinical Chronobiology

The Division of Digestive Diseases and Nutrition physician investigators Ali Keshavarzian, MD; Garth Swanson, MD, MS; and scientist Robin M. Voigt-Zuwala, PhD, research a vast range of human circadian projects. The Center for Clinical Chronobiology at Rush University Medical Center is a unique facility that has been specifically designed to conduct circadian research studies in humans. The phase assessment room (and attached bathroom) is designed for collecting saliva, blood, urine and stool samples in continuously dim light (<5 lux) for up to four reclined subjects at once for 24 hours. There is also a kitchen for subject food preparation and a storage room. A sample processing room  is available with a centrifuge, sterile hood and freezer to perform various sample processing procedures.

The center is conveniently located on the third floor of the Johnson Bowman Center at 710 S. Paulina St. on the Rush main campus. If research collaboration is of interest, please contact us.
