Clinical, Research and/or Teaching Responsibilities

Dr. Rivara holds the Children's Guild Association Endowed Chair in Pediatrics, and is a UW professor of pediatrics and an adjunct professor of epidemiology.

His contributions to the field of injury control have spanned 30 years. He served as founding director of the Harborview Injury and Research Center in Seattle for 13 years, and was founding president of the International Society for Child and Adolescent Injury Prevention.

Dr. Rivara has devoted his career to studying childhood injury and injury prevention. He has conducted seminal research on the effectiveness of bicycle helmets and developed programs to promote helmet use that have been copied and implemented around the world. These programs have led to a significant reduction in the number of children sustaining bicycle-related traumatic brain injury and death.

His current research is on the long term disability after traumatic brain injury in children, interventions to reduce the prevalence of PTSD after traumatic injury in adolescents, and the genetic factors associated with poor recovery from trauma. He is the author of over 390 publications, the majority on injury control.
