Mistimed Sleep Disrupts Human Molecular Clock, University of Surrey Study

A new study, conducted by sleep and systems biology researchers from the University of Surrey, has found that the daily rhythms of many genes are disrupted when sleep times shift. The research, funded by a grant from the BBSRC and conducted in the University of Surrey’s Clinical Research Centre, saw 22 participants placed on a 28-hour day schedule, with their sleep-wake cycle delayed by four hours each day until sleep occurred during the middle of the day. Researchers then collected blood samples to measure the participants’ rhythms of gene expression.
