Chooza Moon, PhD, RN

Assistant Professor

Chooza Moon is investigating the consequences of sleep and circadian rhythms in individuals with ischemic heart disease and heart failure, as well as sleep/circadian rhythm and brain health in general aging. Her earlier research focused on how sleep and multimorbidities are associated with cognition and brain health in heart failure. She currently leads a team focusing on aging, sleep, and circadian rhythm in patients with coronary heart disease in collaboration with interdisciplinary scholars. Internal funding supported these projects, and she was recently awarded a 3-year research grant from the Alzheimer’s Association to study the associations between circadian rhythm and neuroimaging data in older adults. Her long-term goal is to develop interventions to impede and alleviate cognitive impairment in people who are at risk for Alzheimer's disease and related dementia.

Research areas
  • Sleep and circadian rhythms in aging
  • Lifestyle factors contribute to Alzheimer's disease and dementia
  • Sleep and cognitive impairment in cardiovascular disease
