The UM Center for Sleep Science's main goal is an interdepartmental center dedicated to filling in the gaps in the understanding in three areas:
- the physiology of normal sleep
- diagnosis of sleep disorders
- treatment of sleep problems
The UM Center for Sleep Science represents a loose but cross-campus affiliation of faculty whose work involves sleep and biological rhythms. With more than 60 faculty, from more than 15 departments, all with an interest in sleep research, CSS strives to work both in the laboratories and the clinics to help patients with sleep disorders realize better health, productivity, and quality of life.
