Our Research

The Johns Hopkins Center for Injury Research & Policy is one of eleven U.S. “Centers of Excellence” in injury control research funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Core funding is provided by the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control.  The Center’s theme—Closing the Gap between Research and Practice to Reduce the Burden of Injury—is addressed in part through conducting innovative research that is highly relevant to policy and program development, implementation, evaluation and dissemination. 

The Center’s multidisciplinary faculty represent expertise across the spectrum of injury research, from primary prevention to acute care and rehabilitation.Click on the eight key areas in the left navigation menu for links to research project summaries and related publications and resources.

Fire Safety

“Being so close to Maryland, I knew Johns Hopkins was a great hospital but I never knew it had the same caliber of researchers until we started to work with the team from the Injury Center,” said Steve Austin, past-president of the Delaware Volunteer Fire Association (DVFA).
