Dr. Redline has led epidemiological studies and clinical trials designed to 1) elucidate the etiologies of sleep disorders in both adults and children, including the role of genetic and early life developmental factors; and 2) understand the cardiovascular and other health outcomes of sleep disorders and the role of sleep interventions in improving health and well-being. She leads the Sleep Reading Center for a number of major multicenter studies and founded and co-directs the National Sleep Research Resource, an international sleep data sharing repository that has made research sleep data easily searchable and accessible, supporting community access to data and to a suite of open source tools. She also supports a sleep apnea patient-focused virtual community and works actively with patient advocates to improve patient education and support. She has co-authored over 650 manuscripts and has served the sleep medicine community in many ways, including as a past Board member of the Sleep Research Society and American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
