Research & Science
CDC’s Injury Center advances research and science to prevent injuries and violence and reduce their consequences. Using evidence-based research, NCIPC translates science into effective policies and programs, and adapts strategies to community and cultural needs to increase widespread adoption.
NCIPC’s extramural research includes a diverse portfolio of investigator-initiated research, small business innovation research projects, and training programs for both NCIPC and the National Center for Environmental Health/Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry. Cross-cutting injury and violence research programs complement the breadth and depth of extramural research at CDC’s Injury Center.
Our research priorities guide CDC’s Injury Center in in identifying solutions to emerging injury and violence issues, encouraging innovative research, and focusing CDC’s public health expertise.
Healthy People is an initiative by the Department of Health and Human Services designed to guide national health promotion and disease prevention efforts to improve the health of the nation, which includes the areas of injury and violence prevention.
This agenda provides information on the independent peer review of documents defined by the Injury Center as influential in terms of their potential impact on public policy or the private sector.
The NCIPC Board of Scientific Counselors (BSC) advises CDC and HHS on research, programs, and monitoring to prevent injury and violence. BSC meetings are open to the public. Members of the public may attend meetings and submit comments for the BSC to consider.
Extramural Research Program Operations develops, plans, coordinates, implements, monitors, and evaluates extramural research that is designed to address CDC’s Injury Center priorities.
