Staff picturePilot Research Program

The CICRC has supported a pilot research program since 2001. The objective of the program is to attract new investigators to injury related research, to provide a source of funds for graduate student research projects in injury under the direction of a faculty advisor and to provide an opportunity to develop new research directions in acute care, rehabilitation, prevention, or biomechanics.
