Developing a research network on the etiology of tobacco dependence
The Foundation's Research Network on the Etiology of Tobacco Dependence Program was designed to bring together leading researchers from a variety of perspectives and disciplines to work collaboratively in the study of the etiology of tobacco dependence in an effort to increase understanding of the development of tobacco dependence.This contract provides support to Denis Prager to work as a consultant on the development of a new initiative, consisting of a research network devoted to studying the etiology of dependence on tobacco. The goal is to assist Foundation staff to draw on the experiences of research networks already in existence in designing a new initiative that utilizes the same mechanism but adapts it to fit well with the Foundation's purposes. Increasing understanding of the etiology of substance abuse is one of the priority areas under the Foundation's goal to reduce the harm from substance abuse.
