  • International,multicentric project dedicated to further unraveling the sleep apnea - Sleep Apnea Global Interdisciplinary Consortium (SAGIC)
    Sleep Researches from all over the globe have formed an international consortium SAGIC under the guideance of the Center of Sleep and Circadian Neurobiology, University of Pennsylvania. This unic group of experts in the field of sleep medicine deidicate their work to further research of the sleep apnea and its associated co-morbidities. Collaborators part of this consortium include sleep disorder and cardiovascular experts from the U.S., Iceland, Germany, France, Taiwan, Australia, and Brazil.
    The mission of SAGIC is to enable research in the genetics and genomics of sleep apnea at an international level. 

    Two projects have already finished with success:
    Project 1: Inter-scorer Reliability of Polysomnography Scoring Among Sleep Centers
    Project 2: Standardization of Sleep Questionnaire

    There are two additional projects planned:
    Project 3: Comparison of cephalometric and digital photography measures
    Project 4: Inventory - Standardized DNA collection and extraction

    Duration: since 2011
