Sleep duration has been linked with a range of health outcomes, including obesity, cardiovascular disease, and depression. The aim of this project is to examine the longitudinal effects of different sleep patterns on these outcomes.

This study will be important in clarifying the influence of sleep patterns on health outcomes such as obesity and CVD. The findings will provide an innovative insight into these associations, and the first large-scale research in an Australian context, while having the potential to inform relevant public health interventions and policy.
