We are a group of collaborative and vibrant researchers at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital who use human genetics to:

  • identify the genetic bases of sleep and circadian rhythms

  • reveal mechanistic links between sleep/circadian rhythms and type 2 diabetes, and other chronic diseases

  • ascertain fetal and maternal genetic risk factors for pregnancy disorders
