The New York Academy of Sciences

Presented By

Presented by The New York Academy of Sciences


Scientific Organizing Committee:

  • Allan Pack, MD, PhD; University of Pennsylvania Medical Center
  • Stressful days and scary movies are not the only things that can lead to sleepless nights. Genes play an important role in sleep regulation, and elucidating the genetic mechanisms associated with sleep disorders like insomnia is critical to understanding normal and pathological sleep states.

    Presented by The New York Academy of Sciences, this one-day conference will explore the regulation of the sleep cycle and how genetic susceptibility leads to sleep disorders, with a goal of informing the discussion of current and future therapies. Take advantage of this opportunity to reserve your seat at the early bird rate by registering today.
