Please see details below of The White Rose Child & Adolescent Sleep Research Network Event taking at the University of York on Monday, 9th December 2019. 

The aim of the meeting is to gather and share information about existing research/projects in this area, expertise and to build new collaborations.


We have been awarded funding by The White Rose University Consortium to establish a multidisciplinary child and adolescent sleep research network. 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.

Lead academics: Professor Barry Wright (University of York), Dr Anna Weighall (University of Sheffield) and Dr Hannah Nash (University of Leeds)

The meeting is free to attend and lunch will be provided. Unfortunately we are unable to pay for your travel.
