Core Faculty/ Practitioners

We work closely with faculty and practitioners across many disciplines, university departments, and locations throughout the University of Michigan and the nation. 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. Search the directory of these Core Faculty/Practitioners to discover potential opportunities for research partnerships and collaboration. You may also search on injury focus area and find all in our research community who specialize in that area.
