About Us

The Resuscitation Research Group at the University of Edinburgh is committed to research and innovation in order to drive improvement in clinical outcomes. We have a range of interests themed around optimising the Chain of Survival in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest. RRG is the primary academic collaborator in the development and delivery of Scotland’s strategy for Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest and is the home of the Save a Life for Scotland partnership.

The tagline for the Resuscitation Research Group is ‘Save Lives, Have Fun, Be Awesome’ which reflects the values and vision of the team. We are motivated by an aspiration to make a real-world impact, maintaining a short distance between our research and practical application. We think that playful curiosity, collaboration and experimentation is some of the most fun you can have with your clothes on, and we want to be as awesome as we can be – while helping others do the very best they can too.
