July 22, 2021, 9:15 AM-5:00 PM – Free, virtual event!
This workshop will explore the state of the science on COVID-19-related sleep and circadian biology research. The presenters will discuss critical findings and identify scientific questions for basic research, clinical investigations, and societal impact studies about sleep and the COVID-19 pandemic. They will also examine how the pandemic has affected sleep across populations, including its relationship to health disparities and sex and gender influences. The goal of this workshop is to identify knowledge gaps and research opportunities that should be prioritized in the interest of medicine, public health, and safety.
