CDC Injury Control Research Centers
In 1987 the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) began funding Injury Control Research Centers (ICRCs) to study ways to prevent injuries. The University of Michigan Injury Prevention Center has been funded by the CDC since 2012, and is currently one of 9 centers nationally.
Injury Control Research Centers conduct research to study ways to prevent injuries and violence and work with community partners to put research findings into action. The ICRC Program forms a national network of nine comprehensive academic research centers that focus on three core functions — research, training, and outreach.
CDC’s Injury Center has identified 10 research priorities covering both unintentional and intentional injuries.
Unintentional Injury Prevention
The impact of the ICRCs’ coordinated research, training, and outreach has achieved progress in addressing several of these areas.
