School of public health gets $19 million grant for tobacco research
Date:9/20/2013

In what is the largest grant in Georgia State University history, the university's School of Public Health and its partners will receive $19 million over five years from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to establish one of 14 Tobacco Centers of Regulatory Science (TCORS).

Georgia State, with its partners, the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) and RTI International, will focus on a particularly important and often overlooked aspect of regulatory science, the understanding of human decision-making around the use of tobacco. Led by Michael P. Eriksen, dean of the School of Public Health and lead author of the "Tobacco Atlas," the Georgia State TCORS will conduct three research projects to examine human economic behavior, consumer reaction to tobacco marketing and individual perception of risk of using novel tobacco products.

"Working with our colleagues on campus, our partners at UIC led by Frank Chaloupka and RTI led by Matthew Farrelly, as well as other TCORS across the country, our research will provide the kind of practical insight FDA and NIH policymakers need to inform their regulatory decisions," Eriksen said. "This type of collaboration is absolutely essential to winning the ongoing battle against tobacco."

Despite decades of work to reduce its use in the United States, tobacco continues to be the leading cause of preventable death and disease. A first-of-its-kind regulatory science tobacco program, TCORS seeks to generate research to inform the regulation of tobacco products to protect public health. Using funds from FDA, TCORS will be coordinated by NIH's Office of Disease Prevention and administered by three NIH institutesthe National Cancer Institute, the National Institute on Drug Abuse and the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute.
