overview Dr. Frank A.J.L. Scheer is a Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School (HMS) and the Director of the Medical Chronobiology Program at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH), Boston. Dr. Scheer’s work focuses on influences of the endogenous circadian system and its disruption—such as with shift work—on cardiovascular, pulmonary, and metabolic regulation and disease states, including hypertension, asthma, obesity and diabetes. Since 2005, Dr. Scheer has been funded continuously as Principal Investigator by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Dr. Scheer has received numerous scientific awards, including the Young Investigator Award by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, the Neal Miller Award by the Academy of Behavioral Medicine Research, and the Outstanding Scientific Achievement Award by the Sleep Research Society. Dr. Scheer is an Editorial Board Member of several peer-reviewed journals, including the American Journal of Cardiovascular Disease, the Neurobiology of Sleep and Circadian Rhythms, and is an Associate Editor at the journal SLEEP. He is a Member the Board of Directors of the Sleep Research Society. Trainees - Undergraduate: Taneisha Benjamin, 2005; Thomas J.
