Brief description Sleep loss through sleep deprivation and sleep disorders is a common problem causing impaired brain and heart function as well as increasing human errors in the workplace. The fellowship will involve new research focusing on how better treatment of sleep problems can reduce blood pressure, vascular disease and road crashes. Cutting edge research facilities will help new studies into how jet lag and shiftwork impair health and how to counter this risk.
