The University of Wisconsin Center for Tobacco Research and Intervention (UW-CTRI) is nationally recognized for its ground-breaking tobacco research that is translated into tobacco treatment. UW-CTRI conducts tobacco research not just in its own labs in Madison and Milwaukee, but also in healthcare clinics throughout Wisconsin. Beyond studying ways to improve treatments, other studies at UW-CTRI are looking at how we can improve the effectiveness of community, state and national responses to reduce the emotional, physical, and financial consequences of smoking.
