Virtual CChIPS Spring Board Meeting
CChIPS Announces 2021-2022 Research Portfolio
April 29, 2021

The Center for Child Injury Prevention Studies (CChIPS) is proud to announce its 2021-2022 research portfolio, which was voted on at the virtual 2021 Spring Industry Advisory Board (IAB) Meeting late last month. CChIPS brings together IAB members from industry, advocacy, and government agencies with researchers from Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and The Ohio State University to conduct child safety research with real-world applications.

The new portfolio is comprised of 11 projects spanning child passenger safety topics, such as examining child restraint system load leg compatibility with vehicles, understanding sources of disparities and the impact on car seat knowledge and real-world behaviors and use, and a continuation of prior CChIPS work linking New Jersey police crash report and hospital discharge data of child occupants.

In teen driving, a line of research on the neuroscience of driving continues, where the team will quantify eye behavior associated with increased cognitive brain responses during simulated driving scenarios in typically developed teens and conduct a pilot comparison among teens with impaired cognitive control, via a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder.
