Gena Glickman

PhD, Center for Circadian Biology, University of California San Diego

Dr. Gena Glickman is currently part of the Center for Circadian Biology at University of California, San Diego. She is a behavioral neuroscientist specializing in the biological effects of light, with a focus on optimizing photic stimuli for circadian and therapeutic applications. Her educational experience includes undergraduate studies at Villanova and Thomas Jefferson Universities.

During that time, she worked in Bud Brainard’s lab, contributing to the action spectrum for melatonin suppression in humans, which established a peak spectral sensitivity in the short wavelength region of the spectrum. She went on to do her graduate work at UCSD with Michael Gorman, where her focus was on the effects of light history in model systems. Dr. Glickman now leads the Chronobiology and Light Research Lab, which conducts studies of sleep, circadian rhythms and neuroendocrine function in mammals, with support from the National Institute of Health, Department of Defense and Department of Energy.

She has extensive experience studying both human and animal models, making her research cutting edge in terms of its translational potential. Current work includes characterizing sleep and circadian rhythms out in the field in unique populations, including infants, shiftworkers and active duty service members. Most recently, she has begun to develop and test novel evidence-based interventions for enhancing sleep and circadian health in real-world settings.
