Researchers at the Harris Center for Precision Wellness in the Department of Genetics and Genomic Sciences at Mount Sinai are conducting a research study to assess whether or not we can use commercially available, non-invasive technology, to better understand sleep and the sleep related factors that contribute to how we think, respond, and feel after sleep. 

Volunteers will wear and use a suite of new wearable technologies, monitors and applications over a 7-day period to collect information on physiological, environmental, activity, and sleep variables. Volunteers will also complete daily assessments of mental and physical performance, fatigue, sleep quality, and alcohol and caffeine intake. Each study volunteer will participate in the trial for 10-23 days and will be compensated for the cost of his/her time and travel. 

Please contact the study team a 212-731-7076 or gregory.botwin@mssm.edu if you are interested in participating or learning more about this study.
