MAIN’s research falls under three key themes:

Injury prevention: Through training research and program development, MAIN works to optimise injury prevention across the globe.

Injury management: After an injury has occurred, death and disability can be prevented by effective trauma systems of care.  As world leaders we impact outcomes by developing, promoting and translating best evidence into practice.

Recovery and community integration: Our research informs the best ways to help people recover from injury and trauma.

MAIN members' research helps influence healthcare system changes with the goal of reducing premature death and disability caused by injury.

Monash University boasts world-class research in the fields of injury prevention, acute care, recovery and health services related to injuries on the road, in the workplace, in the home and in the community.

Complementing these centres of research excellence are teams of internationally-respected clinicians at the university’s premier health-care partner, Alfred Health.

MAIN brings these teams together to create a network that is internationally-recognised for excellence in collaborative discovery science, translational research and clinical research focused on achieving measurable improvements in injury-related health.
