Although sometimes labelled “accidental," almost all injuries can be prevented. The UAB Youth Safety Lab, founded in 2001, conducts cutting-edge, innovative research designed to improve children’s health and safety. Our results are published in premier scientific journals and appear regularly in local, national and international media outlets.
