CWRU researchers establish sleep center

Researchers from Case Western Reserve University have partnered with Brigham and Women’s Hospital to establish a national sleep research center with the help of a $7.7 million grant from the National Institutes of Health.
GQ Zhang, division chief of medical informatics and professor of computer science at Case Western Reserve, will serve as the chief architect and principal investigator of the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute National Sleep Research Resource Center. He is collaborating with Susan Redline, associate clinical director of the Division of Sleep Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and principal investigator of the NSSR grant.
The five-year grant will make data from more than 50,000 sleep studies available to sleep researchers across the country. Read the Cleveland Plain Dealer’s coverage of the new center.
