Jonathan Johnston

Professor of Chronobiology and Integrative Physiology, University of Surrey

I gained my PhD from Manchester in 2002, following studies into day-length regulation of daily and seasonal rhythms. I then worked on similar projects in Aberdeen for 4 years, before taking up a lectureship in Surrey.

Since setting up my own laboratory in Surrey, I have moved into the study of human circadian rhythms. Most of my work now involves studying human volunteers in laboratory settings, but I am also involved in analysis of circadian rhythms found in cells grown in the laboratory.
