Center for Injury Research and Prevention

Injury Research Sponsors

Our injury research sponsors support the Center for Injury Research and Prevention (CIRP)'s mission to advance the science of child injury prevention. Government and foundation grants, sponsored-research agreements, and generous gifts from industry have made it possible for CIRP to translate rigorous research into effective strategies to prevent pediatric injuries and fatalities and promote recovery.
