Action Medical Research is a UK-wide medical research charity dedicated to helping sick babies and children. One of their more recent successes contributed to the development of cooling therapy for newborn babies suffering from oxygen shortage.
In the UK each year, more than 1,000 newborn babies are likely to lose their life or be permanently disabled after suffering brain injury due to oxygen shortage.
However, there is still much progress to be made and that is why the charity is continuing to fund the next stages of research to build on this pioneering therapy. The charity is celebrating 60 years of vital research in 2012.
