Participate in a Sleep Study

  • Participants needed for a research study.

    Looking for healthy men and women, ages 18-35, to participate in two laboratory visits of approximately 3.7 days each at the University of Colorado-Boulder Sleep and Chronobiology Laboratory. Compensation up to $2,451.

    Email sleep.study@colorado.edu for study details and ask about the Navy study.

  • Participants needed for a sleep research study at the University of Colorado Boulder and Anschutz Medical Campus.

Looking for healthy men and women, ages 18-35 to participate in a 6-day laboratory stay. Compensation up to $1,150.

This research study is looking at the effect of insufficient sleep on people. Sleeping too little and being awake at the wrong time can impact your ability to think, proteins and hormones in your blood, how your muscle and fat cells work and many other things. This work will be important for people who do not get enough sleep and are at a high risk for developing diabetes and obesity. Tests include blood draws, sleep loss, tissue biopsies and computer testing.

  • Are you aged 18-45 and healthy? Join our research study on light exposure and the body clock

    This study is about how typical artificial indoor lighting versus a simulation of a natural sunset influences the timing of the human body clock.  The body clock controls 24-hour patterns of physiology such as sleep and hormone release. This work will have important implications for determining how implementation of new lighting technology can be used to promote sleep.

    We are looking for healthy men and women, aged 18-45, to participate in a study lasting approximately 15 days consisting of wearing an activity tracking watch at home, and two laboratory visits of about 7 hours each at the University of Colorado-Boulder Sleep and Chronobiology Laboratory.

    Compensation up to $200.

    For study details, email sleep.study@colorado.edu and ask about the Simulated Sunset study.
