The San Francisco Injury Center for Research and Prevention (SFIC) is one of 13 Injury Control Research Centers funded by the National Center for injury Prevention and Control at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The SFIC was established in 1989 and is located at the San Francisco General Hospital campus of the University of California, San Francisco, School of Medicine.
The SFIC is a center without walls - bringing together multidisciplinary faculty investigators from throughout the UCSF campus and beyond. The resulting collaborative efforts in laboratory research, clinical trials and injury prevention research have the potential to improve outcomes for victims of trauma in our region and to influence the field of injury control on a global basis.
Our theme is "Injury Control 2010: Making Changes and Meeting Challenges". Our work builds on our history of successfully conducting high quality scientific research that impacts the care of the severely injured patient, while at the same time focusing on prevention programs driven by local data.
