The University of Michigan Tobacco Center of Regulatory Science (TCORS) is one of nine sites in the nation awarded by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and National Institutes of Health to conduct research to directly inform FDA regulation of tobacco products. As a part of the TCORS team, I am examining differences in polytobacco use (the use of multiple tobacco products) by sociodemographic subgroup to inform modeling of the impact of potential tobacco control policies on related health disparities.
