We have a guest speaker in connection with the history of chronobiology project coming: Michael Smolensky.  He will give a public presentation "Chronotherapeutics: Conceptual Developments and Clinical Applications of the Past 100 Years" in 555 Diehl Hall, 12:20-1:10.  The poster for the talk is attached at the bottom. After his lecture we can convene the Chronobiology Workshop at 2:00 and engage him in some discussion about the field, his work, whatever you wish!

There are three readings that might be of interest for this talk and for our meeting with Smolensky.

1. This piece is on chronobiology and hypertension, an area that has occupied Franz Halberg and Germaine Cornelissen here at UM, so it is maybe worth reading for this reason.
Michael H. Smolensky and Francesco Portaluppi, "Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring: Application to Clinical

Medicine and Antihypertension Medication Trials," Annals New York Academy of Sciences 783 (1996): 278-294.

2. This ones about chronobiology and epidemiology as sciences that should work together

Michael H. Smolensky, "Chronobiology and Epidemiology," Pathologie Biologie 35, no. 6 (1987):991-1004.

3. And this one is about clinical chronobiology and occupational health.

Michael H. Smolensky and Alain Reinberg, "Clinical Chronobiology: Relevance and Applications to the Practice of Occupational Medicine," Occupational Medicine 5, no. 2 (1990): 239-272.
