New Scientist Highlights FFCWS Work on Sleep and Telomere Length

Friday, Jul 7, 2017

The New Scientist recently published an article "Children who sleep less may age faster at a cellular level", which covers recent findings from FFCWS research on youth sleep and telomere length. Using data from our Age-9 wave, the study found that telomeres were shorter in children who slept less.

The article focuses on a paper in press at The Journal of Pediatrics written by Sarah James, Sara McLanahan, Jeanne Brooks-Gunn, Colter Mitchell, Lisa Schneper, Brandon Wagner, and Daniel Notterman. To read the original paper's abstract, click here.
