Amid the nonstop news cycle throughout the year, IPR faculty research has provided a rigorous, evidence-based foundation for dialogue on pivotal policy issues. Many of IPR’s most-read 2018 articles reflect wider policy concerns, from bias in medicine and sexism, to crime and the future of work. They also reveal who our faculty experts are as leaders in their fields and why they do the work that they do.

A new study by IPR's Gregory MillerEdith Chen, and Robin Nusslock explores why a second-hand experience of violence affects some youth but not others.
