New Tobacco Research Funding Opportunity:
The NIH and the FDA have formed an interagency partnership to foster research relevant to tobacco regulations. This funding opportunity invites center grant (P50) applications for Tobacco Centers of Regulatory Science (TCORS) for Research Relevant to the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act. The overall TCORS program objective is to conduct programs of multidisciplinary research that will inform the manufacture, distribution, and marketing of tobacco products related to the regulatory authority of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Center for Tobacco Products (CTP). The research findings generated from this FOA are expected to provide additional scientific data to inform the regulation of the tobacco products to protect public health.
