How to Access the Sleep Core

When planning to use Core services, contact Chris Cielo, MD, Core Director, at cieloc [at] To budget for Core services, contact John Krall, Administrative Director - krallj [at] It is helpful to provide a copy of the protocol prior to submission.

To officially request Sleep Core services, an eCHPS application must be submitted via eResearch. CHPS and IRB final approval are needed prior to use of the Core. A budget must also be prepared/approved through Clinical Trials Financial Management.

Once the application is approved by the CHPS Resource Committee, study teams are asked to schedule a start-up meeting All studies require IRB and CHPS approval before CHPS services can be provided.

To schedule, contact the Sleep Core front office at 215-590-3703 to obtain an available time for services and then submit in OnCore specifying the sleep test needed, as well as the date and time provided by the Sleep Core office staff. The CHOP Sleep Laboratory is located on the 1st Floor of Main Hospital.
