The University of Michigan Injury Prevention Center focuses on injury prevention, education, and research.
The University of Michigan Injury Prevention Center is one of nine Injury Control Research Centers funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Working closely with faculty across many disciplines, with regional education and public health partners, and in close coordination with the CDC, we generate and share new findings about injury prevention that can impact both policy and individual behavior. Our work encompasses both intentional injury and unintentional injury.
Injury is the leading cause of death for people 1 to 44 years old and the leading cause of potential years of life lost in the U.S., at a cost to society in the hundreds of billions of dollars per year. Successful approaches to decrease the burden of injury require innovation.
