IMPACT | S3 | Ep 3 | Passion for peak performance inspires sleep PhD
The science is in: better sleep helps humans perform better in elite sport, and in countless other facets of life.
But CQUniversity sleep researcher Dr Michele Lastella says there’s still a long road ahead to convince our sleep-resistant society of the benefits.
After more than a decade researching how sleep affects performance for elite athletes, Dr Lastella shares his research journey with CQU’s IMPACT podcast, for this new series focused on research higher degree alumni.
Dr Lastella’s PhD centred on sleep research with the Australian Institute of Sport, the largest of its kind.
Scholarship opportunities for CQU research higher degree students are now open, to learn more book now for an RHD information webinar.
