“We manage collaborative projects to disseminate knowledge about why sleep is fundamental for health.”

(Lluis de Lecea, PhD March 2018)

We foster healthcare professionals’ access to knowledge in sleep medicine.

Together with the International University of Catalonia (UIC, for its name in Catalan), we have founded the Center for Studies of Sleep Medicine AdSalutem Institute-UIC with the aim of developing research and training programs about healthful sleep. Thanks to this strategic collaboration, our knowledge platform has been implemented in the Sant Cugat del Vallès Campus. This will enable us to remain in constant contact with future generations of health professionals and cutting edge research.
