The Tobacco and Nicotine Products Regulatory Science Symposium provides a forum for diverse stakeholders to share scientific studies and research from a wide range of disciplines.

Presentations will focus on studies and research that are either conducted for or contribute to the U.S. regulatory process, which is established by the Tobacco Control Act and administered by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Tobacco Products (CTP). These presentations will be critiqued and discussed by expert panelists, and event attendees will also have the opportunity to engage in constructive dialogue with both presenters and panelists.

Please note the Symposium will focus on studies and research submitted to CTP to inform its decisions, and also encourage discourse on identifying, conducting, and communicating science inherent to a sound decision-making process; however, this event is not intended to be a forum to critique CTP decisions themselves.


Sponsorship opportunities are available. Please let us know if you would like more information.
