About the Sleep Research Society

The Sleep Research Society (SRS) is an organization for scientific investigators who educate and research sleep and circadian science. The SRS serves its members and the field of sleep research through training and education, and by providing forums for the collaboration and the exchange of ideas. The SRS facilitates its goals through an annual SLEEP meeting, held in conjunction with the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM), where cutting-edge research is presented. The meeting includes the SRS Trainee Symposia Series, a program specifically aimed at young researchers entering the field of sleep. New in 2019, the SRS will host a bi-annual meeting, Advances in Sleep and Circadian Science, a single track conference with extensive cutting-edge research discussions that will bridge sleep and circadian science. Additionally, the SRS advocates on behalf of its members to increase federally-funded sleep research through grass-roots lobbying and communications efforts. The SRS also publishes the journal SLEEP, produces educational products and provides volunteer opportunities for regular and student members.

Mission

  • To establish and maintain standards of reporting and classifying data in the field of sleep research
  • To collaborate with other organizations to foster scientific investigation on sleep and its disorders

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Mission Statement

The Sleep Research Society (SRS) views diversity, equity, and inclusion of its community – including in its leadership, committees, staff, and members – as vital components of its mission to advance sleep and circadian science. The SRS is committed to being a scientific community that recognizes, appreciates, values and welcomes the different and wide-ranging dimensions that contribute to the society, including: age, race, ethnicity, sex, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disabilities, socioeconomic status and disadvantaged backgrounds, religious beliefs, political affiliations, life and research experiences, background and perspectives, national origin, military or veteran status, geographic regions and cultures. These broad dimensions drive scientific innovation and discovery, improve the quality of our community and our science, and ultimately, the success of our society. Therefore, the SRS strives to create an environment of open-minded dialog, diversity, equity, and inclusion.
