Piper is excited to continue as Secretary/Treasurer. “I enjoy it. The goal of SRNT is to advance tobacco science. It is fun to see the big picture ideas, where we could go and what we could do. My job is to think about those ideas from a financial perspective as well. I also really enjoy working with Bruce and the members of the SRNT Board and Finance Committee.”
One future goal is to establish a global certification program for tobacco researchers in low and middle-income countries.
