NeuroSleep - NHMRC Centre for Translational Sleep and Circadian Neurobiology

NeuroSleep, the Centre for Translational Sleep and Circadian Neurobiology, opened in 2014 with $2.5 million in funding over five years from the National Health and Medical Research Council Centre of Research Excellence (CRE) scheme.

NeuroSleep’s aim is to improve cognition, workplace safety, and health outcomes in patients with sleep problems such as shift workers, patients with sleep disorders, neurodegenerative and/or mental health problems.

It will build on the success of two former Centres of Research Excellence led by Prof Ron Grunstein: Centre for Integrated Research and Understanding of Sleep (CIRUS, 2009 – 2013) and the CCRE in Respiratory and Sleep Medicine (2005-2009).

The collaborative team is made up of top researchers from the Woolcock Institute, Monash University, Neuroscience Research Australia, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Concord Repatriation General Hospital, and University of Sydney’s Brain & Mind Research Institute (BMRI) and Charles Perkins Centre.

NeuroSleep supports world-class interventional sleep health research aimed to inform clinical practice and alter health policy. NeuroSleep’s goal is to foster the next generation of sleep and neurobiological researchers and create research leaders.
