‘Rules’ of Engagement: Academic Science and the Tobacco Industry in an Evolving Tobacco Regulatory Environment

14:45 - 15:00

The tobacco industry has a history of distorting and even undermining academic science that is counter to its business interests.  But with the changing regulatory environment, discussion and debate has increased about whether scientists dedicated to tobacco control should engage in any fashion with the tobacco industry.  In this session, we will explore questions about academic scientist interaction with the tobacco industry (eg unpaid consulting, conference attendance), conducting research funded directly or indirectly by the tobacco industry, and publication of tobacco industry-funded science.  Those questions and others will be explored in the context of an evolving environment where tobacco industry products are already approved to use for smoking cessation and could be approved as reduced harm products
