Abstract: AbstractChronic circadian disruption due to shift work or frequent travel across time zones leads to jet‐lag and an increased risk of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. The development of new pharmaceuticals to treat circadian disorders, however, is costly and hugely time‐consuming. We therefore performed a high‐throughput chemical screen of existing drugs for circadian clock modulators in human U2OS cells, with the aim of repurposing known bioactive compounds. Approximately 5% of the drugs screened…
