The University of Minnesota Transdisciplinary Tobacco Use Research Center (UMN TTURC) is one of eight TTURC affiliates funded through the National Cancer Institute and the National Institute on Drug Abuse. The overall goal of the TTURC is to stimulate integrated research across scientific disciplines, such as the neurosciences, economics, epidemiology, genetics, behavioral sciences, pharmacology, and medicine in order to significantly advance our understanding of tobacco use, nicotine addiction, and tobacco harm reduction.
