We are the Medical Chronobiology Program team at the Brigham and Women's Hospital. We are looking for healthy volunteers to participate in a new research study.

This new research study aims to find out how a person's genes and their behaviors influence the effect of night work on physiological (how the body works) changes that may link to the higher risks for diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular diseases in night-shift workers. We also want to find out if certain dietary patterns can help prevent or lessen the negative health effects of night work. More information about the research is shown below. 

For inquiries, please contact us by phone 617-525-0522 (Monday through Friday 9AM to 5PM) or email  mcp_mitigation@BWH.HARVARD.EDU  and one of our study team members will get back to you.
