  1. (Yuan, Robin) Jun 1, 2023 - May 31, 2024
    Harvard University William F. Milton Fund
    The metabolic effect of exposure to circadian disruption in a naïve cohort of medical students
    Role Description: The major goal of the study is to determine whether glycemic variability and disrupted sleep in medical students increase during two weeks of a clinical rotation with shiftwork compared to two weeks of a clinical rotation without shiftwork.
    Role: Principal Investigator
  2. 289-FP-22 (Yuan, Robin) Jan 23, 2023 - Jul 23, 2024
    American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM)
    Changes in heart rate variability in response to chronic circadian disruption with and without sleep restriction
    Role Description: The major goals are to determine 1) whether chronic circadian disruption with concurrent sleep restriction progressively increases parasympathetic withdrawal over 3 weeks of exposure; 2) whether minimizing concurrent sleep loss during chronic circadian disruption partially mitigates increases in parasympathetic withdrawal over 3 weeks of exposure; and 3) whether autonomic nervous system activity recovers to baseline after 1 week of recovery sleep following 3 weeks of exposure to circadian disruption with or without sleep restriction
    Role: Principal Investigator
  3. BRI Microgrant (Yuan, Robin) Oct 21, 2020 - Oct 21, 2024
    Brigham Research Institute
    Understanding how knowledge impacts behavioral sleep health: Sleep scientists in the context of the HAPA model
    Role Description: The major goals are to determine 1) whether sleep scientists practice healthy sleep habits; and 2) how sleep scientists self-report their attitudes, perceived behavioral control, and action planning with regards to best practices in sleep health, within the context of the Health Action Process Approach (HAPA) model
    Role: Principal Investigator
  4. F32HL143893 (YUAN, ROBIN) Jul 15, 2018 - Oct 14, 2020
    NIH
    Sleep and circadian effects on memory in healthy young and older adults
    Role: Principal Investigator
  5. F31MH105161 (YUAN, ROBIN) Feb 6, 2015 - Feb 5, 2017
    NIH
    Effects of extinction on cellular activity in the dorsal and ventral hippocampus
    Role: Principal Investigator

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
