Our Mission

We are proposing to expand existing sleep research, education and outreach efforts at Emory to: 1) identify and grow innovative multidisciplinary research collaborations at Emory targeting different populations and settings; 2) create new, and strengthen existing, sleep training opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students; and 3) promote healthy sleep to the Emory community, as well as the greater Atlanta community, Georgia and beyond.
