Welcome to the Bell-Pedersen Lab. We are in the Biology Department at Texas A&M University and study how the circadian clock regulates rhythmic gene expression.

Circadian clocks regulate many aspects of physiology, and defects in the clock are associated with sleep disorders, metabolic syndrome, cancer, and heart disease. We focus on elucidating new and unexplored ways that the clock regulates rhythmic gene expression to provide insights into novel approaches to treat clock-associated diseases. We are always excited to add new lab members. Take a look at our research page to learn more about what we do!
