The BioClock Studio is an innovative course in which undergraduate students, drawn from diverse disciplines across the arts and the sciences, work collaboratively to develop their scientific and communication skills and produce creative educational materials. Students in the BioClock Studio work with UC San Diego’s Center for Circadian Biology faculty to enhance scientific understanding among different audiences, including students, the general public, clinicians, and researchers outside of circadian biology.
Upon approval of their application, students can participate in the BioClock Studio during Winter quarter by enrolling for 4 units either in BIMM 116B through the Division of Biological Sciences or CAT 124 through Sixth College. Students can earn elective credit for BIMM 116B, and can earn unit credit for up to three enrollments in BIMM 116B.
