Two faculty in the International Injury Research Unit are among ten faculty members who received pilot grants from the Johns Hopkins Center for Global Health to support their proposed global health projects. Thirty-one applicants competed for the grants.

Aruna Chandran, Assistant Scientist in Health Systems/International Health, will work with IIRU on developing EMS and injury surveillance systems in Pakistan.

Sai Ma, Assistant Scientist in Population Family and Reproductive Health, will work with IIRU in exploring the burden of injuries in China that require hospitalization.

Many congratulations to both of our colleagues for two achievements: getting the award and raising the profile of international injury research. For more information, please see Faculty Grants in Global Health.
