Research Interests

Dr. Borker is interested in understanding how sleep contributes to adverse health outcomes, particularly cardiovascular and chronic lung diseases. Dr. Borker’s past research has included utilizing polysomnogram measures to subphenotype obstructive sleep apnea and examining the incidence of subclinical interstitial lungabnormalities in patients with underlying obstructive sleep apnea. She also has several publications in the Journal of Neuroscience examining conformational changes of NMDA receptor proteins during gating. She is currently investigating the biological mechanisms by which sleep dysregulation predisposes to inflammation and cardiovascular disease in persons with chronic HIV infection.
