History

For three decades, 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.

Since its inception, the Johns Hopkins Center for Injury Research and Policy has received core funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The Center is dedicated to closing the gap between injury research and practice to reduce and prevent the fires, poisonings, drownings, car crashes, domestic violence, and other causes of injury that lead to devastating and costly results.

The Johns Hopkins Center for Injury Research and Policy is one of the largest injury research and educational programs in the world, and is comprised of a team of scientists, teachers, and practitioners. The Center is an academic collaborative made up of a multi-disciplinary group of faculty, staff, and students.
