As part of our drive to build our knowledge of what best practice in resuscitation means, Resuscitation Council UK funds and supports resuscitation research projects across the UK.
For decades we’ve been providing financial and practical support for resuscitation-related research projects that aim to shape what we know about resuscitation. Every year, we offer research and development grants to individuals who are looking to discover new things in various resuscitation topics, including AED use and in-hospital cardiac arrest.
