U-M Injury Center UROP Student Projects (2016-2017)

For the past few years, researchers and faculty at the University of Michigan Injury Center have engaged in the U-M Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) on the Ann Arbor campus. As UROP Research Mentors, our Center members have had the opportunity to collaborate with students, gaining valuable insight on projects while providing students with unique learning experiences and aiding in the development of their research skills. 

This past school year (2016-17), the U-M Injury Center worked with 10 students on various injury prevention studies and projects. At the end of the winter semester, the students were able to summarize their projects in the form of a poster and present at the annual UROP Spring Research Symposium at the Michigan Union. We are proud to post the pictures of our students with their posters at this year's Symposium. 

Thank you to everyone involved in the projects: the students, their Supervisors and the Research Mentors. The Center gained invaluable contributions from these students.
