Prof Peter Eastwood
Brief description My primary research focus is to understand the mechanisms underlying sleep-related breathing disorders, such as obstructive sleep apnoea, and develop better ways to diagnose and treat them. I also investigate physical therapies to improve the lives of people with chronic lung disease. Both sleep disorders and lung disease are extremely common in Australia. Improving the health and quality of life of these individuals has important personal benefit and social and economic benefits.
