Center for Injury Prevention among Youth
University Michigan Injury Center
The Center for Injury Prevention among Youth (CIPY) ceased to be in 2010. It has merged with Emergency Medicine's Injury Research Center to grow into the new University Michigan Injury Center, a larger collaboration of UMTRI, the School of Public Health, and the Medical School that will build and strengthen capacity at U-M in injury research.
CIPY, directed by Dr. Jean Shope, was begun July 1, 2008 with support from UMTRI and the U-M's Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR), in collaboration with the School of Public Health, where it was housed in the Department of Health Behavior and Health Education (HBHE).
The former CIPY's activities are included on the U-M Injury Center activities web pages with the exception of its student support. CIPY Graduate Student Research Assistants included Arushi Baluja, who completed her MPH in HBHE, and Johnathon Ehsani, who successfully defended his doctoral thesis in HBHE.
Some of the Injury Center faculty's funded research projects (carried over from CIPY) are described here.
