The next meeting of the Falmouth Rotary Club of Cape Cod will be on Wednesday, December 7, at 5:30 PM at the Falmouth High School library.

The featured speaker will be Kathy Siwicki, who will discuss The Biology of Circadian Rhythms. The talk will focus on her research while at Brandeis University as a postdoctoral student on a gene that encodes a critical protein of the circadian clock. This work was part of the body of work that led to a Nobel prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2017, awarded to her research group leader, Jeff Hall, on the genes controlling sleep and circadian rhythms in fruit flies.
