Center for the Study of Tobacco Products Honored

The Center for the Study of Tobacco Products has been named the 2018 recipient of the American Psychological Association’s Prize for Interdisciplinary Team Research.

The center, part of the Department of Psychology, brings together a multi-disciplinary team of faculty from VCU, American University of Beirut and Penn State University to develop and apply regulatory science to the evaluation of tobacco products and to train the next generation of tobacco regulatory scientists.

“We are thrilled to have been selected for this award. We feel that we have an outstanding team that is producing rigorous science needed to inform tobacco-related policy, so it is validating to see this formally acknowledged by APA,” said Alison Breland, Ph.D., project director in the Center for the Study of Tobacco Products and an assistant research professor in the Department of Psychology.
