Sleep technology podcast episode

In our latest podcast episode, we chat with Dr. Miranda Lim, a neurologist with board certification in Sleep Medicine. Miranda Lim, M.D., Ph.D. is an Associate Professor in Neurology with secondary appointments in Behavioral Neuroscience and Medicine in the OHSU School of Medicine. Dr. Lim is an Affiliated Faculty member at the Institute and also has a joint appointment as a Staff Physician and Research Investigator at the Veterans Affairs Portland Health Care System.

Dr. Lim’s research program, Sleep & Health Applied Research Program (SHARP) focuses on understanding the function of sleep in neurological disorders across the lifespan. Some examples include autism spectrum disorder, traumatic brain injury (TBI), posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and aging/neurodegenerative disease. As a translational neuroscientist, Dr. Lim’s research program is known for its bidirectional, translational research spanning preclinical (rodent) and human studies. She uses methods that include conducting sleep studies (such as sleep manipulations and sleep interventions), quantitative analyses of sleep and implementing non-obtrusive long-term wearables (e.g., actigraphy, mattress sensors and using machine learning to quantify sleep.

Over the years, Miranda’s research has been published in high-impact journals such as Nature, Journal of Clinical Investigation, Science Translational Medicine and Science Advances, as well as support from many federal and foundation sources, such as the National Institutes of Health, Department of Defense, American Sleep Foundation, Center for Aging and Technology, Portland VA Research Foundation and more. Dr. Lim’s research has been featured on OHSU NewsOPBGeekWire, The Columbian, PDX Monthly and Oregon and the Workplace Blog.

On the podcast, she talks to us about her U.S. Department of Defense-funded research, a three-year study that involves studying a head-worn device to enhance sleep.
