Training Network

Training is an important part of our activities - whether this be through PhD supervision, day courses or research networks. A recent Marie Curie project saw both early career and established researchers spend significant periods of time at Surrey.  The aim of the project was to identify factors (molecular, physiological, behavioural, sociological) causing sleep loss and clarify the physiological and behavioural consequences of sleep loss. How age, gender, clock genetics and social context impact on these responses will be investigated among both women and men at different stages of the life course. Also, we assessed how the response to sleep loss is associated with risk factors for cardiovascular diseases and diabetes.
