The American Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) Institute invites qualified investigators to submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) for a research grant related to Sudden Unexpected Infant Death (SUID). Applicants must have a faculty appointment or the equivalent at a United States-based university, hospital, research institution, or medical examiner office. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, pathology, physiology, neonatology, cardiology, and epidemiology.

Submitted LOIs will be evaluated by the American SIDS Institute Research Council. Applicants with well-defined, high-priority LOI proposals will be invited to submit complete research grant applications. Successful grant proposals will be funded for two years at $70,000.
