The Center for Sleep and Circadian Neurobiology (CSCN) is a multidisciplinary center dedicated to exploring and understanding the basic mechanism of sleep and circadian rhythm, the pathogenesis of sleep disorders and the outcomes of therapy. The broad range of research activities, the frequent seminars and the excellent mentorship combine to make the CSCN a leader in the training of sleep medicine researchers.
The Division of Sleep Medicine was the first independent Sleep Division established in the United States. Based in the University of Pennsylvania Department of Medicine, the division's membership reflects the multidisciplinary nature of sleep medicine at Penn. It draws its faculty members from different academic departments and specialties. The Division of Sleep Medicine provides high quality care serving patients with the whole range of sleep disorders. In providing care, the division ensures that findings from our research and that of others is transferred into practice. Our fellows come from many different disciplines, and receive training in all aspects of sleep medicine. Faculty in the division are committed to advancing knowledge in sleep medicine by conducting the highest quality basic and clinical research.
The program utilizes specialists in pulmonary medicine, neurology, psychiatry, geriatrics, pediatrics and nursing. These specialists also work closely with colleagues in otorhinolaryngology (ear, nose and throat), oral-maxillo-facial surgery, and weight management in the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea.
