Dr. Franz Halberg of Roseville, the man who coined the term “circadian rhythms” and studied their effects on the delivery of chemotherapy and the diagnosis of hypertension, died June 9, just short of his 94th birthday.
Halberg was considered the father of modern chronobiology, a term he coined for using science in tune with the daily, weekly and other rhythms of the body. He also founded the Halberg Chronobiology Center at the University of Minnesota.
At an international symposium held in Shoreview to mark his 90th birthday, he discussed his life’s work and said each person has a built-in, 24-hour rhythm that can make the difference between the success and failure of a certain treatment.
