5th Annual Conference: Tobacco Regulatory Science

October 5-6, 2017

Burlington Hilton Hotel

Burlington, Vermont


The theme of this year’s conference is Tobacco Regulatory Science, with particular focus on vulnerable populations. Regulating the nicotine content of cigarettes and other products is an important responsibility of the FDA that has tremendous potential to reduce smoking prevalence and improve the U.S. public health. Scholars from leading U.S. universities and medical centers will share their research and knowledge throughout the 2-day program. 


This year’s keynote speaker is Mitch Zeller, J.D., Director, Center for Tobacco Products, U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Director Zeller leads the FDA’s efforts to reduce the disease and death from tobacco use and bring previously unavailable information about its dangers to light. He is dedicated to carrying out CTP's charge to reduce the harm from all tobacco products across the entire population – with a focus on how and why people start, stop, or start again after stopping.


We are also announcing the call for poster abstracts in the focus area of tobacco regulatory science. Posters will be reviewed and considered on a rolling basis; abstracts will be evaluated on the basis of scientific merit. Please send submissions (including title, authors, affiliations and a 250-word abstract) to Diann Gaalema, Ph.D., at Diann.Gaalema@med.uvm.edu before July 31.
