C-12: Topics in Sleep Data Science

Half-Day Course
Philip Gehrman, PhD, Chair

Both researchers and clinicians often lack the information necessary to expand their data collection and analysis into new domains. The goal of this postgraduate course is to provide basic, practical information on the collection and use of several types of data within sleep research and clinical practice. The course will provide attendees with a foundation for expanding their work into new types of sleep data.
