Carsten Skarke is the Robert L. McNeil Jr. Fellow in Translational Medicine and Therapeutics and currently an Adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Medicine at the Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania.
Carsten’s research focusses on the role of biorhythms in health and disease and how these are perturbed by environmental factors such as air pollution. His mechanistic approach spans the full spectrum of time-specific multiomic strategies integrated with multimodal phenotypic data to parse the human chronobiome. Lessons learned from establishing these comprehensive clinical study paradigms in adults will be applied to children in the coming years.
