The SCNi has six key strategic aims:
  1. Understand the mechanisms that generate and regulate sleep and circadian physiology & behaviour.
  2. Define the mechanisms and nature of sleep and circadian rhythm disruption across healthy aging and disease.
  3. Define how societal demands give rise to sleep and circadian rhythm disruption.
  4. Apply this knowledge for the development of evidence-based and condition specific therapeutics/interventions.
  5. Develop training resources and sleep education for healthcare practitioners and other key stakeholders.
  6. Transfer knowledge to all sectors – scientists, healthcare professionals, patients and caregivers.

Take a look at our research pages to see how we are working towards these aims.
