Summary: The purpose of the program is to develop centers that conduct high quality research and help translate scientific discoveries into practice for the prevention and control of fatal and nonfatal injuries, violence, and related disabilities and serve as training centers as well as information centers for the public. This program addresses the “Healthy People 2020” focus area(s) of injury and violence prevention. For more information, see

The purposes of the NCIPC ICRC program are to:

  • Build the scientific base for the prevention and control of fatal and nonfatal injuries, violence, and related disabilities.
  • Integrate, in the context of a national program, professionals from a wide spectrum of disciplines of epidemiology, behavioral and social sciences, medicine, biostatistics, public health, health economics, law, criminal justice, and engineering to perform research and provided technical expertise in order to prevent and control injuries and/or violence more effectively.
  • Encourage investigators to propose research that involves intervention development and testing as well as research on methods to enhance the adoption and maintenance of effective intervention strategies among individuals, organizations, or communities.
  • Provide technical assistance to injury and/or violence prevention and control programs in their geographic region, including other researchers; universities; medical institutions; community groups; state and local government agencies, public health agencies; and policy makers.
  • Use their research findings to inform policy.
  • Act as sources of injury and/or violence prevention and control information for their constituents and stakeholders at the local, state, tribal, national, and global levels.

An injury control research center functions as a multidisciplinary/interdisciplinary organization that provides outreach, training, and conducts research in a cross cutting and integrated manner that impacts the field of injury and/or violence prevention and control. Centers should strive to strengthen the injury and/or violence prevention infrastructure by integrating resources at the local, state, and national levels. Centers activities should focus on high CDC priority topics and issues including NCIPC’s priorities as well as problems of injury and/or violence prevention and control unique to the center’s geographic region. Centers activities should also focus on translational research. For the purposes of this FOA translation research also includes dissemination and implementation research.
