support global research
Through the support of Centers of Excellence for science-based tobacco control research at academic centers around the world, the Foundation aims to develop the next generation of leaders and institutions to accelerate the end of smoking.
Knowledge gaps are impeding progress in smoking harm reduction, so the Foundation supports research in areas such as the health risks of reduced-risk products compared to cigarettes, how risk perception impacts decisions by smokers and policy makers, and the effectiveness of various approaches to smoking harm reduction.
Additionally, the Foundation addresses ethical, legal and social issues that could hamper progress in helping smokers quit cigarettes.
