Viterbi Innovation Fund – Sleep Health Using Bioengineering


SleepHuB is a unique network of clinicians, scientists and engineers who work collaboratively to conceptualize and operationalize translational projects related to sleep. We seek to improve sleep health through the development of novel diagnostic and therapeutic technologies. We will facilitate and perform innovative interdisciplinary research that encompasses: the quantitative physiology of normal and abnormal sleep; the development & application of state-of- the-art predictive models and imaging methodologies for sleep apnea; for pediatric and adult sleep apnea and snoring.

We also aim to position USC as the leading research institution focusing on sleep health with significant technological and methodological contributions from bioengineering.
