The Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (TCA) provides the authority to regulate tobacco product manufacturing, distribution and marketing. Regulatory research will provide the scientific evidence to guide the implementation of this authority. Research areas include: 1) approaches that test the toxicity of tobacco smoke, aerosol, or specific constituents, 2) the effect of tobacco product characteristics on addiction and abuse liability, 3) the short and long term health effects of tobacco products, 4) understanding the knowledge, attitudes and behaviors related to tobacco product use, 5) understanding how to effectively communicate the health effects of tobacco products, 6) the influences of tobacco marketing, and 7) understanding the impact of potential FDA regulatory actions. The strategic priorities for these research areas can be found at https://www.fda.gov/tobacco-products/research/research-priorities
