The Sleep Research Society and its members urge Congress to make sleep training and research a priority, through the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The following are general recommendations to congress involving sleep and the NIH:
The SRS supports the preservation of initial investments in health care innovation and biomedical research. Strengthening and preserving our nation's biomedical research enterprise through NIH fosters economic growth and is vital to the innovations that enhance the health and well-being of the American people.
The SRS strongly supports the NIH's commitment to research training. Career training opportunities must be expanded for biomedical research professionals in order to address the safety risk of sleep disorders on society. Career development grants are crucial to the recruitment of promising young researchers, and to the continuing education of established investigators. The SRS encourages the NIH to commit to training in the field of sleep research through mechanisms such as the K awards.
Addressing the role of sleep and sleep disorders in public health and longevity requires large cohort studies. Multi-institute research networks are needed in order to conduct these studies.
