CARS AND CITIES: REDUCING ROAD TRAUMA AND ENHANCING POPULATION HEALTH
Grant number: 1136250 | Funding period: 2018 - 2022
The aim of this Fellowship is to generate novel research findings to inform and facilitate reductions in the burden of road injury in Australia. The research program will place considerable emphasis on road injury prevention from a systems-perspective and will, for the first time, extend prevention efforts more ‘up-stream’ with respect to how our cities are designed to minimise road trauma and enhance population health.
