Sleep Research

Research Focus

Our research team aims to gain a greater understanding of sleep and sleep disorders, with the hope that this will lead to improvements in the treatment of sleep disorders. Our active studies focus on obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), and include the testing of different treatments for OSA, as well as studying the concurrence of OSA with other medical conditions such as COPD and HIV. We are also interested in the control of breathing, and how a person's breathing changes when exposed to low oxygen and high carbon dioxide levels.
