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.

“Killer Design” Course for Hopkins Undergrads

At Johns Hopkins University, a new course, Killer Design: Maximizing Safety in the Design Process, is being offered this Spring to undergraduates from all disciplines thanks to support provided by Professor Susan P. Baker. The course will feature faculty from the Johns Hopkins Center for Injury Research and Policy, Biomedical Engineering at the School of Medicine, and the Whiting School of Engineering. “We capped the course at 20 students for the first year, and, as an indicator of both interest and need, we hit that number the first day students were allowed to register,” reported Harry Goldberg, PhD, Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
