Sleep is increasingly recognised as the third pillar of good health, alongside diet and exercise. The sleep program investigates the role of the internal biological clock in sleep, sleep disorders (like insomnia and obstructive sleep apnea), and a person's ability to adapt to unusual sleep patterns, such as shift work.
It is also investigates how sleep, body-clock disturbances and fatigue contribute to impairments in mood, memory and cognition, and disorders such as depression, posttraumatic stress disorder, and traumatic brain injury.
Through our clinics we provide advanced treatments for sleep disorders. We are also continuously developing and testing new interventions ensuring that our findings are rapidly translated into improved sleep health.
We also work with industry to developing technologies to monitor alertness and body clock function in the work and clinical setting.
