HOW WE ARE FUNDED

THE NICOTINE AND CANNABIS POLICY CENTER IS FUNDED FOR 4 YEARS WITH $3.8 MILLION FROM THE TOBACCO-RELATED DISEASE RESEARCH PROGRAM

The NCPC is the result of a successful grant application for $3.8 million from the Tobacco-Related Disease Research Program (TRDRP), which began in August 2018.

The application represents an extensive range of collaborations spanning different Californian universities, research disciplines, and community organizations at the national, state and local level. NCPC Members include:

  • 10 UC Merced Faculty

  • 2 Stanford University Researchers

  • 5 Community Organization Experts

TRDRP itself is part of the University of California, Office of the President, and UC Merced is the first university to receive the award. To learn more about the TRDRP, its mission and background, click the image below.
