Welcome to the Firearm Injury & Policy Research Program (FIPRP) at the University of Washington!

FIPRP was formed in 2019 with funding from the Washington State Legislature building on the four-decade-long history of firearm research at the University of Washington. We believe that equitable and transformative change to prevent firearm-related harm can only be effectively materialized through genuine partnership with those most impacted by this public health and public safety challenge. Alongside community, research, and policy partners, we: (1) investigate the determinants of firearm death and injury at the individual, community, and societal level; (2) evaluate the effectiveness of firearm laws and policies; (3) assess the consequences of firearm violence; and (4) develop strategies to reduce the toll of firearm-related harm among people of the state and our country. We welcome your ideas, support, and collaboration. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
