UW-CTRI has 3 new studies and 8 other active studies. Here is the new study:
1) Breaking Addiction to Tobacco for Health 2 (BREATHE 2). (Status: Set to recruit this fall) In a first, researchers at the University of Wisconsin will compare the most effective treatments to help people quit smoking in real-world clinics with a goal of tailoring and optimizing help to individual smokers. Funded by NCI. Drs. Timothy Baker and Michael Fiore, PIs.
2) VA Merit Grant. (Status: Set to recruit this fall) The US Department of Veterans Affairs has awarded a new grant to UW-CTRI Researcher Dr. Jessica Cook and the William S. Middleton Memorial Veterans Hospital (VA) in Madison to be the first ever to evaluate a chronic care system designed to help veterans who are both ready and not ready to quit smoking. Funded by the VA. Dr. Jess Cook, PI.
3) Options Study. (Status: Set to recruit this fall) People in the Madison and Milwaukee areas who want to see what it’s like to temporarily switch from just smoking to alternative products—like Juul e-cigarettes or cigarettes with very low nicotine content—can give it a try in a new research study. Funded by NCI and FDA. Dr. Megan Piper, PI.
