What

The SAO PAULO SCHOOL OF ADVANCED SCIENCE ON ECOLOGY OF HUMAN SLEEP AND BIOLOGICAL RHYTHMS aims to bring together renowned researchers and students from Brazil and around the world in a contemporary teaching atmosphere to teach basic concepts and discuss the consequences of applying this knowledge in well-being, disease prevention and treatment in human populations. The school will focus on sleep and circadian rhythms from an ecological perspective. Students engaged in research in chronobiology, sleep, human ecology and related fields are encouraged to register and participate in the event to be held in August 2020 in the city of São Paulo, Brazil. We will provide funding for transportation and accommodation for selected students.
