Cunningham is the director for the Center for Sleep and Cognition at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School. His primary research focus is understanding the role of sleep and sleep loss in emotion and memory processing and how knowledge of these systems can be applied to both healthy and clinical populations.

While the presentation starts at 7 p.m., anyone who would like to come early will have the opportunity to view the Griffin’s exhibit titled “In the Room Where it Happened,” which displays photographs of past presidents by their official photographers.  The exhibit closes on 3/30 so this could be your last chance.
