Research is conducted in pursuit of our strategy: to halve the number of SIDS by 2020 and continue to reduce sudden and unexpected deaths in infancy. The Grantholders meeting is an opportunity for researchers from a diverse range of specialties to share their findings with colleagues and guests to further their own and others’ knowledge of sudden infant death.

The 2017 Grantholders meeting took place on Thursday 14th September at the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH), London. The meeting was led by the Chair of The Lullaby Trust’s Scientific Committee, Professor Helen Ball. More than 60 attendees including researchers, bereaved parents, and healthcare and policy professionals listened to Lullaby Trust Grantholders present on their current research and heard about two new research projects for 2017.
