In collaboration with investigators from Harvard University, Dr. Stone directs the Data Coordinating Center for the multi-center ROSTERS trial, which is investigating the impact of a sleep-science based work schedule versus traditional work schedule on rates of medical errors among second and third year medical residents in pediatric Intensive Care Units.
In collaboration with Drs. Steve Cummings and Gregory Tranah at the San Francisco Coordinating Center, Dr. Stone’s studies are being analyzed to determine genes linked to insomnia, sleep apnea, and other sleep disturbances. Results of these investigations may yield new targets for sleep disorder therapies.
Dr. Stone is planning randomized trials to evaluate the effectiveness of treatments for sleep disorders in older adults, and their impact on cognitive function, risk of falls, and other health-related outcomes.
Dr. Stone is a member of the Executive Committee and co-Chair of the Clinical Trials Outcomes Working Group for the National Sleep Research Network. She has served as a charter member of the National Institutes of Health Cardiovascular and Sleep Epidemiology Study Section, and also serves on the advisory board of CPMC’s Brain Health Center.
Dr. Stone received her M.A. in biostatistics and her Ph.D. in epidemiology from the University of California, Berkeley.
