The mission of the Korey Stringer Institute is to provide first-rate information, resources, assistance and advocacy for the prevention of sudden death in sport, especially as it relates to exertional heat stroke. The Korey Stringer Institute is housed in the Neag School of Education at the University of Connecticut. UConn has a strong tradition and reputation as one of the leading institutions studying heat and hydration issues related to athletes and the physically active. KSI is partnered with the National Football League (NFL), Gatorade and Timex to further advance its efforts and goals.
The HEAT Institute is dedicated to conducting independent research related to the evaluation, avoidance and treatment of heat-related illness in athletes. They are committed to raising funds from sources not associated with a corporation that could benefit from this on-going research. The HEAT Institute is interested in collaborating with individuals and private foundations seeking to support and promote independent and unbiased research on thermoregulation and body fluid balance in athletes at risk for heat illness.
