Dr Lang holds an Early Career Postdoctoral (Peter Doherty) Research Fellowship from the National Health and Medical Research Council of Australia (NHMRC). Carol has previously undertaken laboratory based research into the composition and function of pulmonary surfactant and has studied the role of the dietary metal zinc, and the proteins that transport zinc, in allergic, viral and smoke-induced airway inflammation and respiratory disease. In 2014, Carol joined The Health Observatory at the Basil Hetzel Institute for Translational Health Research and University of Adelaide to undertake training in epidemiology and to study sleep disordered breathing. Her latest research has focused on the two most common sleep disorders known as obstructive sleep apnea and insomnia. Carol is currently using epidemiological research techniques to study how these sleep disorders relate to cognition and mental health as we age.
