Every week in the UK 12 'apparently fit and healthy' young people die suddenly from undiagnosed heart conditions. CRY's Research Fellows will work prevent further tragedies from occuring in the future.


CRY's new Research Fellows will work on research projects investigating Sudden Death Syndrome to work towards reducing the amount of tragedies that occur in the future. They will also help young people now through working in CRY clinics with families who are facing a diagnosis or who have lost a loved one. They will also play a very important role in CRY's screening programme, detecting cardiac condtions in young people.
