Lead: Dr. Beth Ebel, MD, MSc, MPH
To advance innovative approaches to safe and active transportation.
To encourage safe travel, improve conditions for active transportation (e.g. walking, biking, public transport), respond to emerging road traffic challenges (e.g. distraction, marijuana-impairment), and prevent traffic-related injury and death through collaborative research, education, and public awareness.
Develop the evidence-base for road injury prevention and promotion of safe and active travel, seek and obtain collaborative funding opportunities, generate public awareness for transportation safety, and establish a network of regional and national traffic injury expertise through collaboration, scientific exchange, and community engagement.
Research projects are organized by PI and their respective Section Membership. HIPRC Faculty may belong to multiple Sections.
