About the lecture

Tobacco regulatory science involves generating data that inform policy intended to reduce the disease and death caused by tobacco products.  Transdisciplinary science occurs when researchers from different fields integrate their expertise in a joint problem solving effort.  In this discussion, Drs. Eissenberg and Guy trace the development of transdisciplinary tobacco regulatory science at the FDA/NIH-funded Center for the Study of Tobacco Products (CSTP) at VCU.  They then outline the rationale and plans for centering health equity in CSTP's work, in an effort to redress long-standing disparities in tobacco-caused disease and death in the United States.

Research Roundtable Topic: Health Equity and Social Determinants of Health
