The Center for Injury Science, founded in 1999, conducts research to promote injury prevention and to improve trauma care. Our mission is to improve outcomes from injury at all stages of care, from the prehospital setting through to resuscitation, acute care and rehabilitation. 

Our approach is cross-cutting and multidisciplinary. Clinicians from many specialties – including trauma surgeons, emergency medicine physicians, anesthesiologists, intensivists and rehabilitation specialists – work closely with epidemiologists, basic scientists, biostatisticians, health economists, health psychologists and methodologists. The center is comprised of four research units: the Clinical Trials Unit, the Trauma Care Delivery Research Unit and the Basic Science and Translational Research Unit.
