CTRC Sleep Core
The CTRC Sleep Core provides services in support of clinical sleep research. It is based at two sites: the CHOP Sleep Laboratory, convenient to the CTRC Outpatient Facility on the 7th Floor of Main Hospital and the University of Pennsylvania’s Sleep Laboratory, located on the 11th Floor of the Gates Building which is part of the medical complex of the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. The Sleep Core contains a total of six designated research beds, dedicated staff, and state-of-the-art equipment that provides support for a variety of sleep-related research initiatives. Studies performed in the Sleep Core include overnight polysomnography, multiple sleep latency testing, neurobehavioral testing and actigraphy. The Sleep Core´s goals include providing highest-quality sleep studies, extending sleep research to disciplines not traditionally involved in this area, further developing extant multidisciplinary programs, and offering training opportunities for medical students, residents, fellows, and junior faculty in clinical sleep research. The Sleep Core is associated with CHOP’s and UPHS’ American Academy of Sleep Medicine-accredited Sleep Center Laboratories.
