Research summarySudden unexpected death in infancy (SUDI), sleep disorders, prevention of obesity, diabetes

Research

Barry Taylor's research interests have spanned paediatric endocrinology, sudden infant death syndrome (both epidemiology and the physiology underpinning the ability of infants to wake up on arousal), and the development of national mortality review for child and youth deaths.

He has, with other staff in the Department, developed interests into the investigation of sleep disorders of children, especially disorders of breathing and autonomic function during sleep and their effects on daytime behaviour.

With the rapidly increasing child obesity rates a national problem, a significant part of Barry's research now focuses on prevention and management of this issue. Of special interest is the interaction (at many levels) between sleep and obesity.
