KRI advances the science of resuscitation and reanimation by funding small, progressive research projects that explore new ideas in this important and evolving field. In particular, KRI supports projects that may face challenges qualifying for funding from other sources, such as pilot projects and proof of concept studies. KRI is committed to developing cutting-edge research, exploring innovative medications and devices for patient care, and advancing leadership and decision-making abilities in this emerging specialty. We help those in the field promote their work and connect with the necessary resources to resolve the challenges emergency medicine healthcare professionals face.
