Center for Injury Research and Policy

Johns Hopkins Center for Injury Research & Policy

Imagine a society that is safe, where all people are free from the burden of life-altering injuries.



Whether you are a student, a parent, an advocate, an employer, a community member, a journalist, a policymaker or a researcher, there is something at our Center for you. For more than 30 years, the Johns Hopkins Center for Injury Research and Policy has played a key role in establishing the field of injury prevention and control. Together with partners like you, we have created effective solutions to some of the most challenging injury problems. I invite you to take a look around our website and reach out if you have questions, issues you want to discuss, or ideas for new collaborations. Together we can make discoveries that make a difference.
