Festival of Wellbeing: College members to present sleep research

24 June 2022 Fellows

Two members of Clare Hall will present a lecture regarding optimal sleep next week, within the University of Cambridge’s Festival of Wellbeing.

Reflecting on their research findings, Professor Sahakian and Dr Langley will explore how to get the perfect night’s sleep, bearing in mind concerns related to climate change, the COVID-19 pandemic, the conflict in Ukraine and the increased cost of living.
