The Mizzou Sleep Research Lab directed by Christina McCrae, PhD, is part of the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Missouri School of Medicine.

Mission Statement

The Mizzou Sleep Research Lab investigates the mechanisms underlying normal and pathological sleep, the link between sleep and cognition, the daily variability inherent in sleep and sleep-related behaviors and the efficacy and effectiveness of cognitive-behavioral interventions to treat insomnia in diverse populations.

The lab is dedicated to finding ways to advance equity in behavioral sleep medicine and actively works to reduce disparities by race and ethnicity, geographic location, disability, and socioeconomic status both through research, as well as through dissemination of information and strategies within disproportionately impacted communities.
