Massey University sleep research centre facing changes

From Morning Report, 8:43 am on 3 August 2020

Massey University wants to absorb the Sleep Wake centre into another department due to a shortfall in funding.

It says this will make no difference to the research, but others fear it will possibly curtail a pioneering attempt to combat fatigue in public hospitals.
