CIRP was established in 1999 and became the first center of emphasis in The Research Institute at Nationwide Children's Hospital. It is one of the 9 CDC-funded Injury Control Research Centers nationally and the only one that focuses on injuries to children and adolescents. CIRP faculty members have academic appointments at The Ohio State University and receive research funding support from many federal and state agencies as well as foundations. CIRP researchers publish a new scientific article, on average, every 3 days.
Students will be provided with the necessary tools for their work but will need access to a personal computer because the program will be conducted remotely in 2023. They will work independently, but will have statistical, epidemiologic, computer data analysis, and other support from experts available. Support is tailored to each student's needs. Students will participate in virtual research team meetings and seminars twice per week.
