Dr. Lim is a neurologist specializing in sleep and circadian biology.  Research in his group is focused on 1) understanding the links between sleep and circadian disruption, the neurobiology of the aging human brain, and neurological diseases in aging and 2) understanding the large-scale molecular (gene expression, epigenetic modification) changes that link circadian and seasonal rhythms to human brain biology in health and disease.  Techniques used include multi-day ambulatory physiologic monitoring in large cohorts, EEG, cognitive testing, genome-wide association studies, time-series analysis of genome-wide transcriptomic and epigenomic data, immunohistochemistry, and MR imaging.
