In April 2022, the University of Wisconsin Center for Tobacco Research and Intervention (UW-CTRI) celebrates 30 years of helping people quit tobacco use.
Founded by Michael Fiore, MD, MPH, MBA, professor, General Internal Medicine – CTRI, and Timothy Baker, PhD, professor emeritus, General Internal Medicine – CTRI, UW-CTRI is nationally recognized for its ground-breaking tobacco research that is translated into tobacco treatment.
UW-CTRI conducts tobacco research in its own labs in Madison and Milwaukee as well as in healthcare clinics throughout Wisconsin. Beyond studying ways to improve treatments, other studies at UW-CTRI are looking at how to improve the effectiveness of community, state and national responses to reduce the emotional, physical, and financial consequences of smoking.
