UK Center for Tobacco Control Studies to be based in Nottingham
Date:1/22/2008

The University of Nottingham will spearhead UK research into tobacco control at a new 5m Centre of Excellence, it was revealed today (Jan 23).

The UK Centre for Tobacco Control Studies will bring together seven leading research groups in a unique partnership, establishing one of the worlds largest research groups dedicated to the prevention of harm from smoking.

Led by Professor John Britton and Professor Ann McNeill at The University of Nottingham, the Centre will be a major international driver of new research, policy and practice to reduce the prevalence of smoking and the harm it causes through prevention of uptake of smoking, promotion of smoking cessation, and development of more effective harm reduction strategies for those currently unable to stop smoking.

Research work will investigate the effects of exposure before birth, smoking uptake and addiction in adolescence, methods of stopping smoking, and approaches to reduce the harm caused by addiction to tobacco. The Centre will also have a major commitment to training and development in this essential area of work.

Centre experts will also work with leading policy-makers and health professionals at national, European and international levels to increase awareness of the importance of tobacco control to reduce smokingrelated death and disease, and advocate effective tobacco control policy implementation.

Professor Britton said: Smoking still kills more people in the UK than any other avoidable cause. Preventing smoking should be the highest priority for public health in this country, but research in this area has been sadly neglected.

This award is a massive boost to all of the groups involved in the Centre, and we look forward to starting work.

The Centre is one of five new Centres of Excellence announced on January 23 set up to combat the biggest public health issues facing the UK today, such as smoking, diet and physical activity, health in
