Comprehensive Care for Sleep Disorders

The UChicago Medicine Sleep Center is a fully integrated center of excellence for sleep and health. Our sleep experts provide and support patient care, education and research. The center aims to foster growth, collaboration and success in diverse areas of science and medicine at both the national and international levels. 

At the Forefront of Sleep Medicine

The University of Chicago opened the world’s first sleep lab in 1925. Since then, our team has pioneered the discovery of rapid eye movement (REM) sleep and uncovered the adverse health consequences of insufficient sleep and sleep disorders. UChicago Sleep Center investigators have led the development of sleep staging protocols that are currently used in clinical practice. Researchers at the institution have published studies showing the importance of sleep not only to cognitive function and memory, but to the entire body and overall health.
