Job Title
Circadian Zirclight, Inc.
Speaker Bio
Dr. Moore-Ede leads the CIRCADIAN® ZircLight team developing and manufacturing LED luminaires with medically-optimized light spectra for 24/7 industrial and healthcare operations. These white light fixtures precisely time the dosage of bioactive blue wavelengths to boost daytime productivity, minimize circadian disruption, and remove harmful bioactive blue light at night.
For over 30 years, Dr. Moore-Ede has been a leading expert on circadian clocks. After experiencing the challenges of fatigue as a surgeon-in-training required to work 36-hour shifts, Dr. Moore-Ede was one of the first to define the challenges of living, working and sleeping in a 24 hour a day, 7-day a week world. As a professor at Harvard Medical School (1975 – 1998), he led the team that located the suprachiasmatic nucleus, the biological clock in the human brain that controls the timing of sleep and wake, and pioneered research on how the human body can safely adapt to working around the clock. In 1983 he founded CIRCADIAN® which optimizes 24/7 workforce productivity, health and safety for over half of the Fortune 500 companies.
Dr. Moore-Ede graduated with a First Class Honors degree in Physiology from the University of London, and received his medical degrees from Guy’s Hospital Medical School, and his Ph.D. in Physiology from Harvard University. He has published 10 books, and more than 150 scientific papers on circadian physiology and its applications to human health, safety and productivity.
