Clete A. Kushida, MD, PhD
Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Stanford University Medical Center
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Kushida is a neurologist and sleep specialist who directs several NIH- and industry-sponsored research studies, focused on topics such as the physical features and neurocognitive changes associated with the obstructive sleep apnea syndrome, the epidemiology and treatment of restless legs syndrome/periodic limb movement disorder, primary care sleep education and training, and countermeasures for sleep loss.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Sleep disorders in patients with postural tachycardia syndrome, REM behavior disorder, autonomic dysfunction in sleep
Emmanuel Mignot, MD, PhD
Craig Reynolds Professor of Sleep Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The research focus of the laboratory is the study of sleep and sleep disorders such as narcolepsy and Kleine Levin syndrome. We also study the neurobiological and genetic basis of the EEG and develop new tools to study sleep using nocturnal polysomnography. Approaches mostly involve human genetic studies (GWAS, sequencing), EEG signal analysis, and immunology (as narcolepsy is an autoimmune disease of the brain).

Professor (Research) of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The research focus of the Sleep and Circadian Neurobiology (SCN) Laboratory is the study of the sleep and circadian physiology using various animal models. A portion of the research is carried out using rodent models of narcolepsy and circadian rhythm sleep disorders. The laboratory also carries out pharmacological studies aiming to develop new treatments for these sleep disorders.
