on in smoking prevalence. One of the most pressing challenges to the field of tobacco control is to understand how to move basic and clinical research out of the laboratory and into the real world more effectively and efficiently to inform a coherent, unified national cessation strategy. Led by Dr. David Abrams, research scientists at the Schroeder Institute conduct trans-disciplinary research in tobacco control treatment and policy, with a focus on both the basic and applied science of dissemination.

"This is an extraordinary opportunity to combine expertise in biomedical, behavioral, social and population sciences to make a difference in eliminating tobacco-use behavior -- the single biggest preventable cause of premature death and disability in our nation," Abrams said.

Lombardi is a National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center dedicated to improving the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of cancer. Research scientists within Lombardi's Division of Population Sciences conduct cutting-edge research in both basic and applied tobacco research, with specific expertise on the interaction between genes and the environment which increase cancer risk.

The establishment of the Consortium will facilitate collaborations between researchers from Schroeder and Lombardi and will leverage the unique strengths, expertise, and resources from each organization. Members of the Consortium will pursue research funding opportunities to improve scientific understanding of the mechanisms of tobacco addiction and to develop and disseminate effective and cost efficient treatment and policy approaches. The ultimate goal of the Consortium is to make a dramatic and timely impact in reducing the population prevalence of smoking.

"Tobacco-use behavior accounts for more than one-third of all cancer deaths in the United States and is the leading cause of preventable death," says Healton. "This exc
