For more than 30 years, the Johns Hopkins Center for Injury Research and Policy has played a key role in redefining injury as a pressing public health problem and promoting injury research as a scientific discipline. The Center is dedicated to closing the gap between injury research and practice to prevent injuries and ameliorate their consequences.
