Tom F. Anders Seminar Series

Brown University via Independent


Welcome to the Homepage for the 2022-2023 Tom F. Anders Seminar Series This series occurs on the 3rd Tuesday of every month (unless otherwise noted) from 12:00 - 1:00 PM EST Please click on the Register tab for individual session dates and topics The Tom Anders Seminars (fka Providence Sleep Research Interest Group (PSRIG)) was formed in 1990 and provides an opportunity for scientists and clinicians to interact on a monthly basis for the scholarly exchange of ideas and information pertaining to the area of sleep and circadian rhythms. We present a diverse lineup of speakers from various institutions both nationally and internationally and to open this series to a wider audience. We hope to maintain an atmosphere that is informal, intimate, and sleep-sophisticated. Sleep and circadian rhythms are intimately related to nearly all aspects of mental and physical health, yet are often underrepresented in the physician training curriculum. Topics are chosen to represent current key topics in sleep, circadian rhythms, and health that are relevant to public health and clinical practice. Invited speakers represent diverse backgrounds and approaches in their study of sleep and chronobiological issues, as well as pediatric mental health, including basic and clinical research.


After participating in this educational series, the learner should be better able to: 

  • Describe the neural mechanisms of sleep, chronobiology, and mental health
  • Outline novel approaches to sleep, mental health, and pathophysiology in children and adolescent sleep and circadian rhythms
  • State psychosocial and cultural predictors that impact health and development
  • Integrate developmental and longitudinal relationships of sleep, circadian rhythms, and mental health
