Title: “Sleep & Increasing Access to More Equitable Insomnia Treatment”

Dr. Ivan Vargas is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Notre Dame. He completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Behavioral Sleep Medicine Program and the Center for Sleep and Circadian Neurobiology at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and received his PhD in Clinical Science from the University of Michigan. Dr. Vargas’ research interests focus on the etiology and treatment of insomnia, especially as it relates to stress-related processes. For example, his research is currently supported by an NIH career development award funded by the National Heart, Lung, & Blood Institute (K23HL141581). His work also includes a number of other projects that evaluate behavioral interventions for sleep (e.g., cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia or CBT-I).

The Virtual Seminar Series is a resource to support career development by providing opportunities for trainees and early career investigators to deliver professional talks to an audience of peers and colleagues through online seminars. Our goal is to provide a resource for Sleep Research Society members at all levels of training to get continued exposure to new and exciting sleep and circadian research methods and findings.
