Program in Sleep and Cardiovascular Medicine

Research Interests

My research interests are primarily focused on: 1)  conducting epidemiological studies designed to elucidate the etiologies of sleep disorders, including the role of genetic and early life developmental factors, and 2) conducting epidemiological and clinical trials aimed at understanding the health outcomes, particularly the cardiovascular consequences, of sleep disorders and the role of sleep interventions in improving health.

I attempt to integrate physiology, clinical medicine, and genetics in epidemiological designs that include: 1) genetic epidemiological studies of sleep apnea and related traits; 2) development/participation in large multicenter observational studies of adult populations; 3) development of pediatric cohort studies to study subclinical markers of cardiovascular disease in relationship to sleep disorders; and 4) intervention trials.

R01HL098433 (PI: Redline)    07/05/2010-04/30/2015
Association of Sleep Disorders with Cardiovascular Health Across Ethnic Groups
This ancillary study to the Multiethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA) is designed to add objective measurements of sleep apnea and sleep patterns (via in-home polysomnography and actigraphy) to 2500 MESA participants to address the role of sleep disturbances to the pathogenesis of cardiovascular disease across ethnic groups.

1-RO1 HL070839 (PI: Stone)    07/01/2003-04/30/2014
Outcomes of Sleep Disorders in Older Men (PSG Reading Center)
The objectives are to evaluate the association of sleep disturbances with mortality, cardiovascular disease, falls, metabolic dysfunction and fractures in 3000 older men recruited from the MrOS study, a multicenter study.  I provide leadership for protocol development and implementation, and over the processing, analysis, quality assurance and technical support for sleep data. These data will provide the source for analyses in the current proposal.

HHSN268200625233C/N01-HC-65233 Hispanic Community Health Study (UNC DCC PI: Chambless; BWH Reading Center PI: Redline)     10/01/2006-03/31/2013
This longitudinal multicenter study will recruit and comprehensively measure risk factors and health outcomes in 16000 Hispanic adults from 4 sites across the US. Il direct all aspects of the protocol related to measuring and interpreting sleep data.

1R01HL102830 (PI: Hanis, Reading Center PI: Redline)    07/07/2010-05/31/2014
GWAS for Sleep Apnea and Endothelial Function Among Mexican Americans
This study to will evaluate sleep apnea and indices of vascular disease in 1300 Mexican Americans to determine the contribution of genetic variation to obstructive sleep apnea, impaired endothelial function, central blood pressure, aortic stiffness and their profile and to determine whether type 2 diabetes and pre-diabetes mediate genomic associations with this axis of non-traditional risk factors. Dr Redline provides oversight for all measurements and interpretation of the new sleep apnea phenotypes.

HL94092 (PI: Redline) 09/01/1999-08/31/2004    Renewal:09/01/2004-08/31/2011
NIH/NHLBI Sleep Heart Health Study (SHHS)
This multi-center longitudinal study assesses the cardiovascular consequences of SDB in 6440 members of communities across the US (the Sleep Heart Health Study). Our Center pioneered approaches for collecting, processing, and analyzing complex polysomnography for such a study. I assist in the protocol development, provide centralized scoring, and quality control for sleep studies collected to better understand cardiovascular morbidity occurring with sleep apnea. Genotype data are available from three of the cohorts in SHHS.

1RC2HL101417-01 (PI: Redline)    09/30/09-08/31/2011
Phase II Trial of Sleep Apnea Treatment to Reduce Cardiovascular Morbidity
This comparative effectiveness study compares changes in intermediate markers of CVD after 3 months of sleep apnea treatment in patients recruited from cardiology practices randomized to nocturnal oxygen supplementation vs CPAP.

1R01 HL083075 NIH/NHLBI (PI: Redline)    09/25/2006-07/31/2011       
A Randomized Controlled Study of Adenotonsillectomy for Childhood Sleep Apnea
This multicenter study addresses the hypothesis that adenotonsillectomy for treatment of obstructive sleep apnea in children aged 5 to 9 years will result in improvements in health outcomes determined 6 months following adenotonsillectomy.  460 children with sleep apnea will be recruited from 4 sites and randomized to early surgery vs watchful waiting, with determination of neurocognitive, behavioral and physiological outcomes. I provide overall leadership for this multi-center study.
