  1. Resource Description
    Overview The Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act of 2009 gave the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authority to regulate tobacco products, including cigarette packaging and graphic warning labels, banning misleading descriptors such as light and low tar that convey the product to be less harmful, as well as setting standards for nicotine content in cigarettes, and the banning of flavorings in cigarettes. Strong empirical support is required to inform policymakers on the most appropriate ways to protect public health through the Tobacco Control Act. The Tobacco Products and Communication Program within the Center for Interdisciplinary Research for Nicotine Addiction is focused on conducting rigorous human laboratory based research designed to examine challenging issues in tobacco regulatory science. Our goals are to better understand how tobacco products can be properly marketed and labeled so that the public is properly informed about their risks, while also characterizing how use patterns of tobacco products impact nicotine and toxin exposure.
