Tobacco and Nicotine Products Regulatory Science Symposium

October 23, 2024   In-Person & Virtual Event

Overview

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.

Call For Submissions

The Call for Submissions will be open through Friday, August 2. FDLI invites you to submit a proposal for the Tobacco and Nicotine Products Regulatory Science Symposium, taking place on Wednesday, October 23. All submissions should focus on a study or research–regardless of publication history or future intent–intended to inform U.S. regulation of tobacco and nicotine products, including but not limited to:
