[Zoom Service] Learning How to Maximize the Benefits of Our Internal Clocks: Latest Research Findings
November 6 @ 10:15 AM – 12:00 PM
Shogo Sato, Ph.D., Assistant Professor in the Department of Biology with a Specialty in Chronobiology at Texas A & M University, will speak to us on the topic, Learning How to Maximize the Benefits of Our Internal Clocks: Latest Research Findings. Dr. Sato will address this very complex subject and attempt to make it meaningful to us. Recently he investigated the time-dependent impact of exercise, revealing exercise at the early active phase, illustrating the atlas of exercise metabolism unique to different exercise timing. Taken together, his past and ongoing studies contribute to the accumulation of evidence underscoring a healthy lifestyle that relies on biological clocks.
Dr. Sato has a broad research background in circadian biology combined with growing knowledge in biochemistry, epigenetics, and metabolism. He started his independent research laboratory at Texas A & M in September 2021. Dr. Sato’s lab primarily aims to develop novel approaches to promote health and reverse metabolic diseases, cancer, and aging through metabolic and epigenetic activation of the circadian clock functions. He received his Ph.D. in Human Sciences from Waseda University in Japan.
