The University of Wisconsin Transdisciplinary Tobacco Use Research Center

UW-CTRI has been a Transdisciplinary Tobacco Use Research Center (TTURC) since 1999. In September 1999, UW-CTRI was selected as one of only seven TTURCs, becoming UW-TTURC and conducting three major research efforts focusing on the understanding and prevention of smoking relapse.

In 2004, UW-TTURC was selected to receive a second round of TTURC funding, this time concentrating on tobacco-dependence treatments and their outcomes. TTURC 2 aims to examine each smoker as a "whole person," taking into account diet, nutrition, exercise and numerous other factors. See graphic.
