Sleep and Pain laboratory

Director Prof. Nicole Tang

The Warwick Sleep and Pain Laboratory is a research facility located at the Department of Psychology.

The lab is home to a group of researchers interested in the science and clinical aspects of sleep and pain, and more broadly, the general association between sleep and health.

Our research group has expertise in clinical psychology, health psychology, and nursing. The type of research we do is multidisciplinary in nature and we apply both qualitative and quantitative research methodologies

For further information on the people in this group, the research taking place, and news and events, visit The Sleep and Pain lab site.
