Sleep Health Foundation Grant Winner 2016

Thank you to the teams who submitted an Expression of Interest for the Inaugural SHF survey on Adult Sleep Health in Australia. We received five very strong applications, but unfortunately only one team can win.

The selection was conducted by four Directors from the Board of the Foundation (none of whom had a real or perceived conflict of interest with any of the applications). The committee felt that all the applicants would have been highly suitable to undertake the project but in the end the strongest team had a very large amount of experience directly relevant to the survey task.

The winning team was the team from the Health Sciences Research Branch, The University of Adelaide led by Prof Robert Adams. You can view their full report here.

The report was also published in July 2017 in the Sleep Health Journal.
