This project builds on the recommendations of the Foundation-sponsored Sundance Tobacco Prevention Research Conference, convened in May 1997, to promote the utility of transdisciplinary research. The project will convene representatives from major funders of tobacco research to serve on a working group charged with identifying pressing research needs, addressing barriers to transdisciplinary research, and exploring opportunities for collaboration across funding agencies. The grantee will maintain the momentum of the committee's work by providing meeting space, teleconferences, electronic communications, and facilitation/technical expertise. The involvement of leading tobacco research experts will help the committee develop future recommendations.
