CDC Injury Research Agenda, 2009-2018

Research Agenda coverAt CDC’s Injury Center, we work to ensure everyone in the United States can live life to their fullest potential. We translate science into effective programs and policies that prevent unintentional and violence-related injuries and that minimize the consequences of injuries when they occur. Research is fundamental to our success because good data are essential in making sound, smart investments. Research provides the knowledge that we need to understand what is possible, what is not, and the best way to proceed in our intervention efforts.
