Doctor to Run New Gun-Violence Research Center in California

From the Wall Street Journal:

A new gun-violence research center in California will be led by a doctor and researcher who has been using his own money to fund gun-violence research at the University of California, Davis.

Garen Wintemute, an emergency-room doctor who leads a gun-violence research group at the school, will head the new University of California Firearm Violence Research Center at UC Davis, according to plans announced this week by University of California President Janet Napolitano.

The state’s Democratic-controlled legislature set aside $5 million earlier this year to fund the center, which the school said is the first state-funded center of its kind in the country.
