The Sleep Research Society announces that Dr. Anthony J. Cunningham, Research Fellow in Psychiatry, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School, is a 2020 Small Research Grant Award recipient.
The Small Research Grant Program is intended to provide seed funding to support training and research to ultimately allow individuals to successfully apply for or complete career development grants (e.g. K-awards).
The Sleep Research Society (SRS) is an organization for scientific investigators who educate and research sleep and circadian science. The SRS serves its members and the field of sleep research through training and education, and by providing forums for the collaboration and the exchange of ideas. The SRS facilitates its goals through an annual SLEEP meeting, held in conjunction with the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM), where cutting-edge research is presented. The meeting includes the SRS Trainee Symposia Series, a program specifically aimed at young researchers entering the field of sleep. New in 2019, the SRS will host a bi-annual meeting, Advances in Sleep and Circadian Science, a single track conference with extensive cutting-edge research discussions that will bridge sleep and circadian science. Additionally, the SRS advocates on behalf of its members to increase federally-funded sleep research through grass-roots lobbying and communications efforts. The SRS also publishes the journal SLEEP, produces educational products and provides volunteer opportunities for regular and student members.
