Sleep is core to mental health and has medical, psychological and societal impact. Sleep deprivation impairs performance, judgment, mood, and is a preventable contributor to accidents. We all experience sleep; yet why we sleep and how the brain generates sleep remain biological mysteries because we lack the tools and data needed to gain a comprehensive picture of sleep. To fill this gap, the Stanford Center for Sleep Sciences and Medicine, with assistance from a multi-disciplinary team, is setting up the infrastructure for a large-scale project to develop and disseminate essential tools and data to the scientific community to advance the field of sleep medicine. These data and tools will be crucial for our understanding of the genetic architecture of sleep and will improve detection, treatment and prevention of sleep disorders. We aim at nothing less than being a catalyst for changing the sleep field
