Allison E. Curry, PhD, MPH is an Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine and a Senior Scientist and Director of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the Center for Injury Research and Prevention at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). She is an injury epidemiologist by training and her research focuses on the prevention of motor vehicle crashes and support of safe transport across the lifespan.
Dr. Curry and her team have spent the last decade developing the New Jersey Safety and Health Outcomes (NJ-SHO) Data Warehouse—a statewide data source of traffic safety and health data that includes 24 million NJ residents—and have published nearly 50 research papers using these data. They are now working to establish the NJ-SHO Center for Integrated Data to ensure important safety data is available to support traffic safety efforts around the state. Dr. Curry is also the principal investigator of a large research program to support driving safety for teens with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and autism spectrum disorder, their families, and groups that support them during the learning-to-drive process.
