Current & Recent CSHR Core Faculty Grants

The research mission of the CSHR is to enable seminal basic discoveries, observations and innovations relevant to sleep and health; to foster their translation into the clinical arena; to promote dissemination of new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches into practice; and to evaluate the public health impact of such new approaches. Success in these endeavors relies upon integrated and synergistic collaborations among scientists and clinicians trained in numerous traditional disciplines spanning nursing and medical science, biological and social science, psychological and physiological science, mathematics, engineering and imaging science. Synergy also is gained by pursuing investigations of basic sleep physiology as well as various sleep pathologies and their associated causes and consequences.
