The U.S. Coalition for the Prevention of Illness and Injury in Sport exists to protect and preserve athlete health through innovative research and advancements in the field of sports medicine.

Created in 2017 as a partnership between the United States Olympic & Paralympic Committee’s sports medicine division, the Steadman Philippon Research Institute and the University of Utah Health, the coalition is one of only 11 research entities worldwide to be recognized and funded by the International Olympic Committee as a member of the IOC Medical Research Network. As part of its four-year membership (2019-2022), the Coalition will collaborate with the 10 other organizations to establish long-term research programs on the prevention of injuries and illness for elite athletes.
