Coursera - Circadian clocks: how rhythms structure life

I'm three quarters of the way through a fascinating on-line course on chronobiology, learning about the internal body clock(s). This is another one of those great courses that opens up a person's understanding of the world.

I'm particularly interested in the last two weeks of the course, when the focus shifts to broader influences of the circadian clock on human beings, from life to death, from illness to health. This is especially relevant because I have recently moved to a job where I work shifts, including a stint of night shifts, where I work from 9:30pm through to 7:30 am.
