Three Harvard Medical School endowed chairs named simultaneously in sleep medicine

Boston, MA - May 11, 2004 - Harvard Medical School (HMS) is taking steps to dramatically advance the field of Sleep Medicine through the simultaneous establishment of three endowed chairs all devoted to this emerging critical field of medicine.

Joseph B. Martin, Dean of HMS, hailed today's announcement as an historic moment for the school and in the evolution of the field of Sleep Medicine. "This generous and timely support will greatly accelerate advances in sleep and circadian rhythm research. At a time when nearly 40 million Americans suffer with sleep disorders, many find numerous barriers to diagnosis and treatment," said Martin, MD, PhD. "These gifts will enable HMS to take a leading role in this interdisciplinary field, ensuring the advancement of scientific research and the development of new treatments for sleep disorders."

The three chairs are named after the founders and Chairmen of three publicly listed companies that have been innovators in sleep therapy: Dr. Frank Baldino, CEO of Cephalon, Inc., Mr. Gerald E. McGinnis, Board Chairman, of Respironics, and Dr. Peter C. Farrell, CEO of ResMed. Each chair was funded by unrestricted gifts from their companies or themselves.

Recognizing the importance of this scientific discipline, Martin established the Division of Sleep Medicine at HMS in 1997. "The goal of the HMS Division of Sleep Medicine has been to establish sleep disorders medicine as a formally recognized medical discipline, and to forge a path of discovery while providing training for the next generation of national leaders in this discipline," said Martin.

President of Brigham and Women's Hospital, Gary Gottlieb, MD, MBA, concurs, "These three chairs will positively impact research and clinical treatments for dangerous and disabling sleep disorders," he said. "The professorships are being created in honor of visionary leaders in the health care industry."

Martin said that the three men whose names will be on
