Organization Description: The Institute for Firearm Injury Prevention aims to generate new knowledge and

advance innovative solutions to reduce firearm death and injury across the

United States. Our mission is to address the substantial burden of firearm

injuries occurring across the lifespan by conducting high-quality research,

education, training, and outreach. The University of Michigan has established

the Institute for Firearm Injury Prevention to increase firearm injury prevention

research and scholarship across U-M and to expand the research pipeline so

that more individuals can study ways to address this national crisis. The

Institute explores firearm injuries across the lifespan, including suicide,

community violence, unintentional injuries, intimate partner violence, officer-

involved shootings, school, and mass shootings, as well as disparities in injury

outcomes across these areas. The Institute has a particular focus on

addressing the disproportionate number of firearm injuries occurring within

vulnerable populations, including children and teens where firearms are the

leading cause of death.
