A major objective of the Yale TCORS is to train new investigators who will conduct translational interdisciplinary research with an emphasis on the basic science underlying nicotine addiction, understanding of the constituents of tobacco and tobacco products, and knowledge of tobacco regulatory processes.

Our training and mentoring plan recruits new investigators from multiple entry levels, ranging from graduate students to postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty members.
