Participate in sleep research

The Sleep Disorders Program has a well-established research program into different aspects of sleep and sleep disorders funded by provincial and national agencies.  It is currently participating in a variety of national Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) clinical trials and is a key member of the recently announced CIHR Sleep and Circadian Rhythm Network (CSCN). 

In a recent independent review, VCH was ranked as the primary clinic in the world for its research work in some aspects of sleep disordered breathing.
