Injury is the leading cause of death for people 1 to 44 years old and the leading cause of potential years of life lost in the U.S. Successful approaches to decrease the burden of injury require innovation. The focus of the U-M Injury Prevention Center Exploratory Project awards is on building capacity in injury research in the region.

The U-M Injury Prevention Center (IPC) anticipates funding two one-year exploratory project awards in 2020 that have the greatest potential to advance injury prevention science.
