We are pleased to announce that Matthew Butler, Ph.D., will be joining CROET faculty in September. Dr. Butler joins us as an Assistant Professor from Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School where he was a Post-doctoral Fellow in the Medical Chronobiology Program, Division of Sleep Medicine. He and his family will be re-locating to Portland in just a few weeks. Dr. Butler has a broad interest in how endogenous clocks are synchronized, and his research has great relevance to the adverse health effects of shift work and how to adapt to altered work schedules. Dr. Butler joins other researchers at Oregon Health & Science University, and specifically at CROET, who investigate circadian rhythms, sleep biology, and impacts on health, performance and disease.
