Research Matters, published by the SAVIR Science & Research and the Advocacy & Policy Committees, highlights injury and violence research with the following focus:

  • Program and Policy Research: Notable success stories of research that directly affected programs and policy.
  • Landmark Research: Cutting edge research has great potential for transforming how we prevent injuries and how we treat trauma victims in the near future.
  • Emerging Research: Innovative emerging research is shaping the future of injury and violence prevention.
Mentor Program - Developed in 2012, the goal of SAVIR's Mentor Program is to provide mentorship to students, trainees, junior faculty, and research scientists that would supplement the resources that they have locally for injury research. The SAVIR mentor would help to provide content and/or methodological research mentoring.
