Core Faculty/ Practitioners

These research experts generate and share new findings about injury prevention that can impact both policy and behavior. Their work may encompass both intentional injury and unintentional injury. We are excited to share and help translate and disseminate the research findings of this productive community.

You may also search on injury focus area and find all in our research community who specialize in that area.
