Satchidananda Panda

PhD, Regulatory Biology Laboratory, Salk Institute for Biological Studies

Satchin Panda, PhD, is a full professor in the Regulatory Biology Department at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies. He is interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms of the biological clock. The biological clock, or circadian oscillator, in most organisms coordinates behavior and physiology with the natural light-dark and feeding cycles. His laboratory uses genetic, genomics, biochemical, and behavioral approaches to identify genes under circadian regulation in different organs and to understand the mechanism of such regulation. His lab also tries to characterize the mechanism by which the circadian oscillator is synchronized to the natural light-dark condition. In addition to his molecular work, Dr. Panda is also very interested in how molecular understanding of circadian rhythms translates to the real-world. He and his team designed the myCircadianClock app to get an understanding of our society’s lifestyle: when, what, and how much we eat, sleep, and move. With enough subjects, he hopes to test the benefits of time-restricted feeding under different conditions of sleep, activity, and disease
