Title: Research Grants to Prevent Firearm-Related  Violence and Injuries (R01)

Organization: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)


The purpose is to solicit investigator-initiated research to understand and prevent firearm-related injuries, deaths, and crime. Mass shooting incidents, other firearm homicides/assaults, firearm suicides/self-harm, unintentional firearm deaths and injuries, and firearm-related crime affect people in all stages of life. Firearm-related injuries are among the 5 leading causes of death for people ages 1-64 in the United States and many more people suffer nonfatal firearm-related injuries with the potential for lifelong consequences. It is critically important for research to help guide strategies to enhance safety from all forms of firearm-related violence and crime. More information here
