Clara Bien Peek, PhD

Assistant Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics and Medicine (Endocrinology)

Epidemiological and genetic studies have shown that disruption of the circadian clock is a factor in multiple pathologies, including metabolic disease, myopathy, and cancer. Our laboratory aims to uncover the physiological impact of the circadian clock on nutrient-responsive regulatory pathways, including oxygen-sensing transcriptional networks. Indeed, we have recently identified a key connection between skeletal muscle clocks and the hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF) pathway, which drives circadian control of the hypoxic response and glucose metabolism. The goal of our laboratory is to understa...
