Sweet Dreams for Sleep and Cognition Researchers

Jamie EdginOur congratulations to Dr. Jamie Edgin, a LuMind Foundation supported researcher, upon her award of funding for infant sleep to begin the “Arizona Sweet Dreams Study.” Edgin and her co-principal investigator Caron Clark will be exploring the link between infants’ early sleep quality and later cognitive development.

Congratulations Jamie and Caron!
