We recently held our third annual CogSleep CRE conference, held across two half days on Monday 13th and Tuesday 14th September 2021, via Zoom Webinar.

We had an exciting program which including international keynotes from Assistant Prof Yue Leng from University of California, San Francisco and Associate Prof Brendan Lucey from Washington University. We will also be hearing about the range of incredible work being conducted across the CogSleep network from researchers at all career stages as well as from other national experts in the field of sleep, ageing and neurodegeneration. This includes Prof Anna King (UTAS), Prof Elizabeth Coulson (UQ), Prof Meng Law (Monash), A/Prof Laura Jacobson (Florey), A/Prof Mathew Pase (Monash), Dr Melinda Jackson (Monash), Dr Melissa Farnham (HRI) and more. The program will feature dedicated sessions on neurobiology and biomarkers, treatment targets, and the links between sleep and cardiovascular disease.

Building on last year’s success, our symposium also featured two sessions from ECRs and students of the thriving CogSleep Academy. Prizes were awarded to our CogSleep Academy presenters.
