Dr. Alberto Ramos is Associate Professor of Clinical Neurology and Research Director of the Sleep Disorders program at the University of Miami, Miller School of Medicine. Dr. Ramos’s research is aimed at the intersection between sleep disorders, cerebrovascular disease and neurocognitive aging in population based studies. Dr. Ramos completed a diversity supplement grant from the NIH/NINDS, aimed to determine the sleep disorders associated to stroke risk factors and cognitive decline in the Northern Manhattan Study. He is also an investigator of the Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos (HCHS/SOL); where He serve as primary consultant for Sleep Research at the Miami field site. Dr. Ramos is supported by NIH/NIA to evaluate sleep phenotypes, neurocognitive decline and incident dementia in HCHS/SOL. He is also supported by NIH/NLBI to determine the sleep phenotypes that predict cardiovascular disease in HCHS/SOL. He was the site-PI for the Sueño study-Sleep as a Risk Factor for Disease in HCHS/SOL – Field Center at the University of Miami. This NHLBI ancillary study evaluated the determinants of abnormal sleep patterns with actigraphy and their effect on cardiometabolic diseases. Dr. Ramos was also the principal investigator of an HCHS/SOL ancillary study evaluating sleep apnea and cerebral hemodynamics as an early marker of cerebrovascular risk at the Miami field site. Dr. Ramos is a Fellow of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and was the Chair of the Young Investigator Research Forum-American Academy of Sleep Medicine Foundation in 2019.
