Professor Jean Francois Etter

Professor of Public Health
University of Geneva

Professor Jean-François Etter (University of Geneva, Switzerland) has over 18 years of conducting smoking etiology, prevention and cessation research. He has published over 120 scientific articles on smoking cessation trials and various psychological questions related to tobacco dependence and smoking cessation.

He is an internationally known expert on e-cigarettes. He has published a comprehensive book on e-cigarettes, which was the first of its kind on the topic. In addition, he is credited with publishing some of the first scientific papers on e-cigarettes. His research has been crucial in shaping the initial understanding of the reasons and patterns of e-cigarette use.

Stated Conflicts of Interest: Professor Etter’s salary is paid by the University of Geneva, Switzerland. He never received any funding from the tobacco industry. He did not receive any funding from the pharmaceutical industry in the past 7 years. He was reimbursed by a manufacturer of e-liquids for traveling to London (in 2012) and to China (in 2013), but he was not paid for these meetings.
