CChIPS Releases the 2022 Annual Report
November 17, 2022

As the 2022 calendar year draws to a close, the Center for Child Injury Prevention Studies (CChIPS) is proud to announce the release of the 2022 CChIPS Annual Report, highlighting recently completed research projects funded through the consortium.

The 10 projects featured in the report span new topics, such as the first to examine child human volunteers in reclined vehicle seating configurations, which are anticipated to be more common in autonomous vehicles, and a project quantifying compatibility concerns between child restraint systems (CRS) and aircraft seats with a goal of increasing CRS use on aircraft. There are also several projects that build upon prior CChIPS work, such as a study looking at rear-facing CRS with a support (or load) leg, and another that utilizes the CHOP-developed Magnetoencephalography (MEG)+Driving+Eye-Tracking paradigm to investigate the association between eye-tracking metrics and cognitive control during simulated driving among typically developing teens and teens with autistic spectrum disorder (ASD).

The release of the 2022 Annual Report coincides with the biannual CChIPS Industry Advisory Board (IAB) meeting, which was held this week at The Ohio State University (OSU). IAB members, principal investigators from CHOP and OSU, and CChIPS leadership convened to share updates on the current 2022-2023 research projects and look ahead to Letters of Intent for projects for the 2023-2024 CChIPS year. This marked our first in-person meeting at OSU in 3 years, and we were thrilled to be back together in Columbus. 

As we look ahead to 2023 and beyond, we are excited to continuing to partner with our IAB member companies to advance the CChIPS mission of conducting high-impact child safety research.
