Dr. Michael Grandner is the Director of the Sleep and Health Research Program and Associate Professor, Clinical Translational Sciences, Medicine, Psychiatry, and Psychology in the University of Arizona College of Medicine - Tucson. He is Board-Certified in Behavioral Sleep Medicine.
Current research projects are funded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) and the National Institute for Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS). One study focuses on sleep patterns and how they relate to cardiometabolic disease risk and neurocognitive function. The other study is on social, environmental and behavioral factors and how they impact sleep. His methodologies include population-level surveys, computer-based geospatial analyses, home-based assessments of sleep and health, and in-laboratory studies.
