This notice announces the Twenty-second Public Meeting of members of the Crash Injury Research and Engineering Network. CIREN is a collaborative effort to conduct research on crashes injury causation at six Level I Trauma Centers across the United States. The CIREN process combines prospective data collection with professional multidisciplinary analysis of medical and engineering evidence to determine injury causation in every crash investigation conducted. Researchers can review data and share expertise, which may lead to a better understanding of crash injury mechanisms and the design of safer vehicles. The six centers will give presentations on current research based on CIREN data and experience. Topics include: Research on upper extremity injury from partial ejection, knee air bag deployment and lower leg interaction, injury cost analysis for motor vehicle multi- trauma, analysis of fatal outcome and multi-trauma, research on seat interaction and lower spine injury, and design of a computed tomography-based bone mineral density evaluation methodology. The final agenda will be posted to the CIREN Web site at ciren. The agenda will be posted one week prior to the meeting. Dates and Time: The meeting is scheduled from 9:00 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, September 3, 2014.
