Coordinating Center

About

Based at the University of Michigan Institute for Firearm Injury Prevention, the Coordinating Center serves as the central hub for managing the key functions of the Community Firearm Violence Prevention Network. In collaboration with the NIH, the Coordinating Center provides cross-network coordination, communication, analysis, engagement, and dissemination efforts to help advance the individual Research Projects that collectively make the Network. The Coordinating Center operates across 5 Cores (see below) that correspond to Network Workgroups. Each core is led by a Coordinating Center Faculty Co-Investigator and managed by a Project Manager with input from multiple Faculty Co-Investigators.
