Child maltreatment, intimate partner violence, sexual violence, and suicide attempts are multi-determined, pose immediate and long-term impacts, and are interrelated. The research on prevention requires interdisciplinary and, ultimately, transdisciplinary work.
The CVIP draws together, and provides communication structures and research support to scientists from several academic departments and research and policy institutes at Washington University, St. Louis University, University of Missouri in Columbia and St Louis, as well as universities in Illinois, New York and South Korea.
To promote engagement of researchers from across these institutions, we convene topical research groups at least once a year to share current work, receive feedback on research ideas, and generate new ideas.
We are committed to community-based applied research and most of our projects involve direct partnership with a regional agency. Projects include:
Our Administrative Core incubates new projects and provides support for new and existing research initiatives as well as providing overall coordination of CVIP activities.
The Center for Violence and Injury Prevention is currently seeking Letters of Intent for our competitive renewal application for small and exploratory projects. For more information, please click here.
