Research is being conducted all over the world to better understand sleep related sudden infant deaths. The American SIDS Institute is involved in research looking at the tissue of infants who have died suddenly and with research studying live infants. This dual approach will hopefully help us understand more about vulnerabilities that make infants more likely to die suddenly.
The American SIDS Institute is part of a global collaboration to identify the gaps in infant death research. To learn about the project & see an update as of February 2016, click here.
