Welcome to the CenTIR Website

The Center for Transportation Injury Research (CenTIR) was established in 1998 at CUBRC, an independent, not-for-profit, research corporation in Buffalo, NY.

Briefly stated, the mission of the CenTIR is to:

  • Perform research which will lead to a reduction in the human and financial costs associated with motor vehicle crashes
  • Perform advanced research to develop the ‘next generation’ of emergency response technologies

Technical staffing for the CenTIR is provided by CUBRC’s in-house scientists and engineers, as well as by faculty and graduate students from the University at Buffalo. This alliance has enabled the CenTIR to continue the rich 50 year heritage of Buffalo-based research and innovation in automotive crash safety, injury prevention and analysis. Technical oversight of the CenTIR is provided by Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA) Turner-Fairbank Highway Research Center.

Currently, the major CenTIR Research Focus Areas include:
