Dr. Dunlap's laboratory is interested in understanding the mechanism by which eukaryotic organisms, including humans, keep time on a daily basis, and how this capacity to keep time is used to regulate metabolism and development. They have cloned "clock genes" as a first step towards identifying gears in the circadian oscillator , have isolated genes whose activities are controlled on a daily basis by the clock, and are studying the means by which the clock controls gene expression.
Dr. Dunlap is supported by an R35 MIRA grant from NIGMS and a U01 consortium grant from NIBIB.
