An intensive, competency-based course, the 2017 Institute is designed to enhance participants' knowledge and skills in injury and violence prevention over 3.5 days. There is a 50-participant cap, so register now before it's too late. Click here to learn more.

Since 1987, the Center has led the effort to redefine injury as a pressing public health problem, promote injury prevention as a scientific discipline, save lives, and reduce disability from injuries.

The Center conducts groundbreaking research, trains students and practitioners, and collaborates with government, nonprofit, and corporate partners worldwide.

Our mission to close the gap between research and practice is accomplished by measuring the incidence and impact of injuries, determining the underlying causes, creating effective solutions, and translating evidence-based research into effective policies and programs.

Celebrating our 30th Anniversary

Join us as we celebrate the Center's 30th anniversary in 2017. JHCIRP was established in 1987 with core funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as part of the federal agency’s early efforts to support more research in the evolving field of injury prevention.
