Rutgers Sleep Lab was established in 2018 by Dr. Andrea Spaeth, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Kinesiology and Health.
The goal of Dr. Spaeth’s research is to develop and implement effective lifestyle modification interventions related to sleep in diverse at-risk populations to promote health and wellness.
Our Mission: To understand the role of sleep in the promotion of health and wellness
What We Do: Design observational and experimental studies to better understand sleep and eating behaviors and conduct clinical trials aimed at improving sleep and metabolic health.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Rutgers Sleep Lab's research team designed a Sleep Tips brochure aimed at improving sleep health during social isolation. For a full list of sleep tips, download the Sleep Tips for Social Isolation Due to COVID-19 brochure.
Every year, Rutgers Sleep Lab student trainees conduct independent research to further their understanding of the role of sleep in health. Click for a full list of Rutgers Sleep Lab Research Posters.
