Independent External Research
The SUDC Foundation performs research to better understand and advocate for the needs of families affected by sudden unexpected and unexplained deaths in childhood.
We utilize data collected by the SUDC Foundation to better understand and advocate for the needs of our community
This internal research does NOT investigate the causes of SUDC.
This research is performed by SUDC Foundation staff and volunteer researchers who have successfully completed the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative for Biomedical Research.
We provide letters of support to endorse related research.
When researchers submit a grant application to another institution and may ask related stakeholder organizations or experts in the field to provide letter of support to be submitted with their application. This can be helpful in conveying to the grant agency how widespread the support is for the application.
Review and approval are the same as grant application review.
The SUDC Foundation has provided such letters of support for high quality research that is in line with our mission.
