Research

The Southeast Center for Agricultural Health & Injury is committed to relevant, trans-disciplinary team science and the continuous translation of both research-to-practice and practice-to-research. The SCAHIP research portfolio reflects our investigators’ collective years of success in (1) engaging stakeholders in collaborative, “catalyst” type projects aimed at understanding and addressing persistent and/or emerging safety and health problems in agriculture, fishing and forestry; (2) fostering the professional development and research skills of new investigators and junior faculty; (3) and testing innovative approaches that can be further used and evaluated in larger studies aimed at reducing or eliminating injury and fatality in the agriculture, fish and forestry occupational sectors. The SCAHIP pilot studies program focuses on regional and National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA) priorities and aims to support worthy feasibility and exploratory investigations each year, depending on availability of funds and the application pool.
