Child & Adolescent Sleep Research Network Event

We are excited to announce that we are hosting a networking event focussed on child and adolescent sleep research on Monday 9th December at the University of York. The aim of the meeting is to gather and share information about existing research/projects in this area, expertise and to build new collaborations.


The aim is to bring together experts and early career researchers from across the University of York, the University of Leeds and the University of Sheffield and other institutions to gather and share information about existing projects, data sets, sleep measurement equipment, facilities and expertise across Yorkshire. The White Rose Child and Adolescent Sleep Research Network aims to build a portfolio of research that explores methods of promoting healthy sleep in young people from a diverse, innovative and multidisciplinary perspective.
