When you ask subjects about lifestyle, don't stop @ diet/exercise. Ask about sleep. When you ask about sleep, don't stop @ length/quality. Ask about circadian timing: when ppl sleep. Is timing dictated by their body clock *or* work/family demands?

Study would seek to characterize the etiological bases, including genetic, socio-cultural and environmental, for the circadian timing, duration and quality of sleep and vulnerability to develop sleep disorders.
There is a need to include survey questions sensitive to sleep and circadian phenotypes, which may be easily administered via smart phone applications.
There is a need to understand the inter-relationships among sleep, diet, physical activity and stress on one another and health outcomes.
It would increase the utility of specimens collected in AoU if they were all time stamped, providing general circadian information.
Biomarkers of sleep sufficiency need to be developed for use in safety for duty and also for use as longer term health indices.
