Centre for Integrated Research and Understanding of Sleep
Sleep loss and disordered sleep is now recognised as a major contributor to mortality, chronic disease and economic health burden.
CIRUS was established in 2009 as a National Health and Medical Research Council - Centre of Clinical Research Excellence. Our aim is to investigate the biology of sleep, and to prevent and to treat disorders of sleep through a uniquely interdisciplinary approach.
CIRUS supports world-class interventional sleep health research aimed to inform clinical practice and alter health policy. Our goal is to foster the next generation of sleep researchers and create research leaders.
