Phyllis Zee, MD, PhD, Chief, Division of Sleep Medicine, Northwestern University, Feinberg School of Medicine

Dr. Phyllis Zee is Director of the Center for Sleep and Circadian Medicine and Chief of the Division of Sleep Medicine at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine. As a leader in the field of sleep and circadian rhythms, her research runs the gamut from basic research into circadian rhythms and sleep to clinical research into the contribution of sleep and circadian disorders to cardiometabolic disease risk. She currently is examining the relationship between sleep and cardiovascular outcomes, including gestational diabetes and high blood pressure, in an NHLBI-funded sleep study that is the first time that sleep quality measures and sleep disorders in pregnant women have been examined in a large population. This work could open doors for the development of novel sleep-based interventions to improve the health of mother and child.
