Press release for our study on the impact of sleep apnea on our body´s biological clocks, published in the scientific journal EBioMedicine, The Lancet, which highlights the urgent need to find new strategies that improve and anticipate the diagnosis of this obstructive respiratory disease, one of the most disturbed sleep disorders prevalent in the world, but still underdiagnosed.

Our collaborative work with the groups of Claudia Cavadas and Ana-Rita Alvaro was published in EBioMedicine. “Long-term continuous positive airway pressure treatment ameliorates biological clock disruptions in obstructive sleep apnea.” Gaspar LS, Hesse J, Yalçin M, Santos B, Carvalhas-Almeida C, Ferreira M, Moita J, Relógio A, Cavadas C, Álvaro AR.

Our work on “Diurnal variations in the expression of core-clock genes correlate with resting muscle properties and predict fluctuations in exercise performance across the day.” by Alireza Basti, et al. was published in BMJ Open Sport Exerc Med

Our joint work on “New Strategies to Develop Circadian Biomarkers for Obstructive Sleep Apnea”, with the groups of Claudia Cavadas and Ana Rita Álvaro, received the award Thomé Villar / Boehringer Ingelheim 2020, 1st Prize, Portuguese Society of Pulmonology, for the best scientific research work on the Pulmonology field
