State and Community Tobacco Control Research Initiative
The National Cancer Institute (NCI) has funded the State and Community Tobacco Control (SCTC) Research Initiative since 2011. The research conducted by the initiative addresses important, understudied aspects of state and community tobacco-control policy and media interventions. The initiative’s four main research areas are:
- Secondhand smoke policies
- Tobacco tax and pricing policies
- Tobacco industry marketing and promotion, and mass media countermeasures
- Community and social norms
The SCTC Research website serves as a publicly accessible portal for highlighting SCTC research projects, publications, and products.
A list of funded centers is available online.
