Are you an adult with a diagnosed sleep phase disorder? This study aims to assess the sleep patterns and quality of sleep in people who have sleep phase disorders to determine how the disorders affect their circadian rhythms. To participate in this study, you must be at least 18 years old and have a sleep phase disorder, such as advanced sleep-wake phase syndrome or delayed sleep-wake phase syndrome. This study is located in Chicago, Illinois.

Do you have overweight? Circadian rhythm disorders can cause overweight and obesity. This study is examining how not getting enough sleep causes these complications. To participate in this study, you must be between the ages of 20 and 40 and have overweight but not obesity. This study is located in New York, New York.

Are you a healthy adult who regularly sleeps for 6.5 or fewer hours? This study is examining whether getting enough sleep can lower your risk of high blood pressure. To participate in this study, you must be between 18 and 65 years old, regularly sleep for 6.5 or fewer hours, and be able to adjust your sleep schedule for the study. This study is located in Rochester, Minnesota.

Are you an adult who does not have high blood pressure? Circadian rhythms control daytime and nighttime changes in blood pressure. This study is examining the links between stress, loss of sodium through urine, and circadian rhythms in controlling blood pressure. To participate in this study, you must be at least 21 years old and not have high blood pressure. This study is located in New York, New York.

Do you have overweight or obesity and normally sleep between 10 pm and 3 am? This study is investigating how sleep schedules and circadian rhythm misalignment can contribute to increased consumption of energy dense/prepared foods and to decreased insulin sensitivity, which can raise a person's risk of cardiometabolic risk factors. This study is located in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Have you had a heart attack, and do you want to help improve strategies for blood transfusion? The study is comparing two strategies for blood transfusions in heart attack patients who have anemia—whether to give a blood transfusion when the hemoglobin level is less than 10 g/dL, or to give blood only when the blood count is below 8 g/dL. To participate in this study, you must be at least 18 years old, have anemia, and be hospitalized for a heart attack. The study is located in New Brunswick, New Jersey.

Do you have coronary heart disease, and are you interested in helping researchers improve how they treat and prevent this condition? This study is exploring new risk factors that may allow for more people with heart disease to get approved for an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD), a device that can detect and stop irregular heartbeats. To participate in this study, you must be 18 years old or older and already have or be eligible for an ICD. This study takes place in Buffalo, New York.

Do you have coronary heart disease or are you healthy and would like to participate in research? This study is comparing how well two types of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners can detect different types of heart diseases, such as coronary heart disease, heart failure, congenital heart disease, and heart valve disease. The new type of MRI scanner in this study uses less energy than a traditional scanner and may be suitable for people who have metal devices in their bodies. This study is located in Bethesda, Maryland.

Are you interested in helping researchers understand what causes heart failure? The study is using a technique called magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) during a cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan to determine whether energy metabolism is disrupted in heart failure and whether this contributes to poor heart function. To participate in this study, you must be at least 18 years old and either be healthy or have coronary artery disease, dilated cardiomyopathy, or left ventricular hypertrophy. The study is located in Baltimore, Maryland.

Are you at least 21 years old, and do you have heart failure? This study aims to better understand why heart failure can make it hard to exercise and perform daily activities. This complication is called exercise intolerance. Participants in the study will complete physical activities and then undergo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to look for changes in the chemicals the body uses for energy. To participate in this study, you must be at least 21 years old, diagnosed with heart failure, and be medically stable. This study is located in Baltimore, Maryland.
