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.
Applications are open: Postdoctoral Research Fellowships and Postgraduate Research Scholarships commencing in 2014 at NeuroSleep, the Centre for Translational Sleep and Circadian Neurobiology – DEADLINE EXTENDED
NeuroSleep, a NHMRC Centre of Research Excellence (CRE), opening in early 2014 will integrate research from neurology, psychiatry, neuropsychology, respiratory neurobiology, chronobiology, imaging, and biophysics. The goal of the centre is to better understand how disrupted sleep leads to impaired brain function and how these problems can be prevented or managed to improve health.
