The National Sleep Research Institute (NSRI) is a 501C-3 (charity) organization that provides funding to sleep research laboratories
for clinical and basic sleep research.
The NSRI insures the independence and purity of the
work it fosters by accepting donations from and providing grants to persons and organizations that seek pure scientific
discovery and have no intent to and will not in any way benefit financially from the outcome of the research.
100% of the monies donated go directly into research. The officers receive no compensation and incidental
costs are paid for by the officers.
Current Projects: The NSRI is currently funding 3 projects:
The first project was and is the building and
development of The Sleep Research Laboratory at Rockefeller University.
The second project and first actual sleep
study at the new Rockefeller Sleep Laboratory is a study of sleep patterns and insomnia in survivors of breast cancer.
The third study explores the basic nature of sleep in people suffering from insomnia.
The NSRI has garnered
the support of researchers from 3 major institutions, Rockefeller, Columbia and Cornell Universities. Researchers from other
institutions are invited to join the initial team.
