Tobacco Funding

Policy on researchers funded by the tobacco industry

The HRB supports excellent research that improves people's health, patient care and health service delivery. In view of the overwhelming evidence that both active and passive smoking of tobacco are injurious to health, the HRB is unwilling to fund applications from individuals applying for, holding, or employed under a research grant from the tobacco industry.

This policy will be implemented for all HRB funding calls issuing from January 2011.
