Our Research

What we do


The Nicotine Research Group (NRG) leads and collaborates on various projects ranging from harm reduction associated with tobacco use to conducting longitudinal studies that provide an evidence-base to inform the development and implementation of tobacco control policies.

Our research is translational, collaborative, impactful and truly international, and you can find out more about the various areas of our work via the links below.

Education and Training

Our commitment to training and development is evidenced by a number of learning resources that have been developed, namely: a bespoke e-learning tobacco dependence treatment course and a face to face advanced skills tobacco dependence treatment training. Prof Ann McNeill also co-leads the UK Centre for Tobacco and Alcohol Studies (UKCTAS) education and training theme. Read more
