Dedicated to eliminating the tragedy of sudden infant deaths

Recently Funded Research Projects

The CJ Foundation is committed to uncovering the cause(s) of SIDS and Other Sleep-related Infant Death. Since its inception, the CJ Foundation has provided millions of dollars in funding for ground-breaking research conducted by prominent researchers whose goal is to understand the medical underpinnings of SIDS, and to develop ways to eliminate the tragedy of SIDS and Other Sleep-related Infant Death. This research not only gets us closer to that goal but also guides education efforts and public awareness activities across the country.

The following is a list of recently funded research projects.
