In the News: Von Arnim Study on Sleep and Cell Growth Connection

UT researcher Albrecht von Arnim recently published a study that found that lack of adequate sleep could short-circuit one’s system and interfere with a fundamental cellular process that drives physical growth, physiological adaptation, and even brain activity. Von Arnim, a molecular biologist based in the Department of Biochemistry and Cellular and Molecular Biology, studied plants but said the concepts may well translate to humans.

Several outlets featured the research including Science DailyScience World Report and Medical News Today. The United States Department of Energy Office of Science also highlighted the news.
