Center for Injury Research and Prevention
Safety is at the heart of the work by the Center for Injury Research and Prevention (CIRP), which is dedicated to translating research into action to prevent injuries in children, teens, and young adults. The Center's mission is propelled by a unique multidisciplinary group of behavioral scientists, clinicians, epidemiologists, biostatisticians, engineers, public health practitioners, and communications professionals. Uniting their unique perspectives and expertise, this dynamic CIRP team translates rigorous scientific research into practical tools and guidelines for families, professionals, and policymakers to ensure research results make a real-world impact.
The Center, which launched in 1997, offers evidence-based information, resources, and tools from CHOP's injury prevention experts across all pediatric injury research priorities: Child Occupant Protection, Concussion, Crash Avoidance and Autonomous Vehicles, Safe Mobility, Teen Driving Safety, Traumatic Stress, and Violence Prevention.
