Description of project

Millions of people worldwide work regularly in nightshifts. This type of work severly disrupts the biological clock and causes numerous health problems. Therefore we will be looking into shift workers, and whether personalized sleep and nutritional interventions can ameliorate the negative consequences of shift work. We will take an interdisciplinary approach and look both at cognition, wellbeing and biomarkers! I hope this research can contribute to better ways of dealing with shift work, so the circadian rhythms in shift workers will be less disturb!
