Susan Redline, MD, MPH

Approved Mentor (Primary, Mentoring Committee)

Dr. Redline’s research interests are primarily focused on: 1) conducting epidemiological studies designed to elucidate the etiologies of sleep disorders, including the role of genetic and early life developmental factors, and 2) conducting epidemiological and clinical trials aimed at understanding the health outcomes, particularly the cardiovascular consequences, of sleep disorders and the role of sleep interventions in improving health.

Dr. Redline attempts to integrate physiology, clinical medicine, and genetics in epidemiological designs that include: 1) genetic epidemiological studies of sleep apnea and related traits; 2) development/participation in large multicenter observational studies of adult populations; 3) development of pediatric cohort studies to study subclinical markers of cardiovascular disease in relationship to sleep disorders; and 4) intervention trials.
