Guidelines for Selecting Research Partners and Research Projects


The Nicotine Science Center will be funding and facilitating selected research projects that fit into the Center’s overall and long term research programs. Supported research projects may involve several researchers, universities, research organizations and funding partners. Cooperation with researchers will be based on our Charter for Research.

The Nicotine Science Center has an interest in supporting research projects within the following areas:

  • Pharmacokinetics with focus on absorption of nicotine in the buccal cavity and alveolar areas
  • Pharmacodynamics with focus on desired and undesired effects of nicotine on the body
  • Oral drug delivery systems as vehicles for nicotine
  • Medication adherence with focus on patients' motivation to take prescribed medications; including identifying and addressing barriers to treatment adherence
