The Penn Injury Science Center brings together university, community, and government partners around injury and violence intervention programs with the greatest potential for impact. We promote and perform the highest quality research, training and translation of scientific discoveries into practice and policy, in order to reduce injuries, violence and their impact to our region, the US, and locations around the world.
Our diverse group of scientists, students, and staff are centrally co-located on the University of Pennsylvania campus in Philadelphia and represent 6 Penn Schools, 12 other Penn Institutes and Centers, 2 Level 1 Trauma Centers, and 3 Research Laboratories.
