Dr. Flaura Koplin Winston is the Distinguished Chair in the Department of Pediatrics at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and a tenured professor of pediatrics at the Perelman School of Medicine. At CHOP she is the founder and Scientific Director of the National Science Foundation Center for Child Injury Prevention Studies and the Center for Injury Research and Prevention, and she leads the CHOP Innovation Ecosystem Initiative. Her interdisciplinary background in medicine, engineering, and public health has allowed her to conduct research at the interface of child and adolescent health, injury, technology, and behavior, which led her to establish the scientific foundation dedicated to the principal cause of child death—injury—while also building and leading effective multi-stakeholder healthcare and prevention teams. Her “research-to-action-to-impact” approach to academic entrepreneurship has led to new patents, products, programs, policies, and laws, as well as a CHOP spin-out technology company called Diagnostic Driving, Inc. For her scientifically rigorous and impactful work, in 2017 she was elected to the National Academy of Medicine.
