Researching Injury and the Human Body

Much of the research conducted in the IBRC is collaborative, combining the efforts of students, faculty and staff in the IBRL and SBRL, and our child injury prevention studies (CChIPS) researchers. Our work is best categorized into regions of the human body. Click on the regions below to learn more.

Epidemiology

To begin all research projects, we must first identify a problem. This means scouring databases for particular case studies of interest or for all cases representing a particular crash scenario or portion of the population at risk for injury.

The National Automotive Sampling System (NASS) Crashworthiness Data System (CDS)contains field data from representative and random vehicle crashes across the United States, and is useful for quantifying incidence and collecting basic data associated with certain crash scenarios of all severities.

The Crash Injury Research Engineering Network (CIREN) contains case studies of serious vehicle crashes conducted by multidisciplinary teams of engineers and medical professionals to tease out injury causation in particular crash scenarios.

Excited to spend the next few days with Gretchen Baker and a number of other colleagues from around the world discussing child passenger safety on the beautiful island of hallo.
