NCI Programs and Initiatives 

Learn about some of the tobacco control and cessation programs and initiatives highlighted at the conference, including:

Cancer Grand Challenges - E-cigarette Use

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) and Cancer Research UK (CRUK), the world's leading funders of cancer research, have partnered to fund the Cancer Grand Challenges program. Cancer Grand Challenges will fund novel ideas by multidisciplinary research teams from around the world that offer the potential to advance bold cancer research and improve outcomes for people affected by cancer.

One of the areas of emphasis for the current challenges is to determine the potential benefits and risks of e-cigarette use. Crucial questions that could be addressed include how do e-cigarettes influence overall tobacco use, including initiation, dual use, and cessation, the short and long-term health consequences of e-cigarette use, and how the regulatory context affect the extent of harms and potential benefits of these products.

Apply for this challenge opportunity by April 22, 2021.

Cancer Moonshot - Cancer Center Cessation Initiative

In 2017, NCI launched the Cancer Center Cessation Initiative, as part of the NCI Cancer Moonshot℠ program. The long-term goal of this Initiative is to help cancer centers build and implement sustainable tobacco cessation treatment programs to routinely address tobacco cessation with cancer patients. A list of funded initiatives and publications about the efforts at these cancer centers are available on the website.

NCI’s Tobacco Control Research Branch

At the booth, leave your card for NCI’s Tobacco Control Research Branch (TCRB), which leads and collaborates on research and disseminates evidence-based findings to prevent, treat, and control tobacco use in order to create a world free of tobacco use and related cancer and suffering. TCRB is within the NCI’s Behavioral Research Program (BRP), in the Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences (DCCPS). 

View the TCRB Fact Sheet to learn more about the branch’s mission, major research initiatives, projects, and smoking cessation resources.
