About the Robert Owens Lab

​We have diverse interests in sleep in and out of the hospital, and why that might be important for overall health and well-being.  Out of the hospital this includes the pathogenesis and consequences of obstructive sleep apnea, the most common respiratory disorder in the developed world, and the increasing use of technology to monitor and increase understanding about sleep.  In the hospital, we are interested in how sleep is disrupted for both patients and family members, and how this might lead to conditions such as ICU delirium.
