About Sleep Research

Sleep Research

Sleep Research is a multidisciplinary team investigating chronic diseases caused by the circadian environment.

Amongst other things we are looking at:

  • Sleep, both the quality and quantity
  • Activity, in terms of volume and time of day
  • Glucose control, in relation to preganancy, diabetes, and metabolic effect
  • Cardiovascular health
  • Regular meals
  • Light and dark, and the timing and spectrum of light

Below is a Directed Acyclic Graph of the circadian environment that we are developing to explore the interrelationships between sleep activity and health.
