Dr. Miriam Ries

Platform Coordinator iHCDP

Dr. Miriam Ries studied neuroscience at the University of Cambridge and received her PhD in Alzheimer’s research from Imperial College London in 2017. While completing a post-doc at ETH Zurich, where she studied pathways of clearance from the brain, she began a Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) in Research Management at the University of Bern. Since February 2022, she is Coordinator of the Integrative Human Circadian Daylight Platform (iHCDP) at the Centre for Chronobiology in Basel.
