Research Portfolio

CChIPS  investigators conduct their work in year-long research projects. Each project falls within one or more of the following research themes:
 
1. Injury Biomechanics, Mechanisms, and Tolerance
   ~ providing the scientific foundation to fuel evidence-based, effective safety technological innovation and regulatory test devices and protocols
2. Technological Solutions (Design, Development and Testing)
   ~ informing enhancements in federal safety regulatory priorities, new safety product development, and trauma medical protocols
3. Human Interaction With and Behavior Related to Safety Technology
   ~ providing the scientific foundation to fuel innovations in safety behavior promotion and effective, real-world use of safety technologies
4. Safety Promotion and Education
   ~ informing enhancements in safety promotion and educational strategies underway among industry, government, and advocates to improve the protection of children
5. Evaluation of Safety Devices or Behavior Modification Programs
   ~ ensuring that current and planned safety strategies in the real world are effective
