Edit Profile

Research Narrative:

Susan Redline, MD, MPH, is the Peter C. Farrell Professor of Sleep Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Professor of Epidemiology at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.  She directs Programs in Sleep and Cardiovascular Medicine and Sleep Medicine Epidemiology at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Dr. Redline’s research includes epidemiological studies and clinical trials designed to 1) elucidate the etiologies of sleep disorders, including the role of genetic and early life developmental factors; and 2) understand the cardiovascular and other health outcomes of sleep disorders and the role of sleep interventions in improving health. She leads the Sleep Reading Center for major NIH multicenter studies, including the Sleep Heart Health Study as well as studies addressing the role of sleep in risk of Alzheimer’s Disease, kidney disease, pregnancy outcomes; co-leads the NHLBI National Sleep Research Resource; leads several multi-center clinical trials addressing the role of sleep interventions in improving health outcomes in children (Pediatric Adenotonsillectomy Trials for Snoring) and adults with heart disease (LOFT-HF). She is the recipient of a NHLBI R35 Outstanding Investigator Award that supports a multi-disciplinary research program that applies advanced physiological analysis of polysomnography studies to large datasets of genotyped individuals in order to better characterize the physiological and molecular basis of sleep apnea and identify subgroups of patients at risk for adverse outcomes.
