How To Get Your Injury Research Funded
Injury is a major biosocial disease that is a burden across all ages in our society. It is the leading cause of death for Americans under the age of 44. It is a preventable disease and an area where multi-disciplinary teams including physicians and researchers can come together and make a real difference.
