Sleep Center Research

The Henry Ford Sleep Research Center, founded in 1978, is one of the first sleep disorders centers in the United States and is consistently one of the top sleep research facilities in the nation. It is home of the Center for Behavioral Circadian Medicine and the Perinatal Sleep Health Institute and now has locations across Southeast Michigan. Our mission is to continuously improve sleep-wake health through the production, incorporation and dissemination of sleep research.

Sleep Medicine Research Studies

We conduct research on all major sleep disorders, including narcolepsy, shift work disorder, and insomnia. We rank among the top funded centers in the country for the study of normal and abnormal sleep processes. Current sleep medicine research topics include:

  • Pharmacology of sleep
  • Effectiveness of digital Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to treat insomnia
  • Improving quality of life for night shift workers
  • Insomnia and depression in pregnant women
