Center for Injury Research and Prevention

Extending Our Mission: Research and Outreach Partners

The Center for Injury Research and Prevention (CIRP) partners frequently with other research and outreach organizations with complementary capacities. We collaborate with other departments within Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and with institutions inside and outside of Philadelphia, including Drexel University, The Ohio State University, and the University of Virginia, to name a few. In addition to partnering to conduct important research, we also partner to train the next generation of injury science leaders.
