UMTRN was established in the belief that, by enhancing research, the sharing of knowledge can ultimately accelerate progress toward a healthier society. The Network is designed to disseminate information and create a forum for the exchange of ideas concerning tobacco and nicotine, both within and outside of the University of Michigan.

Anyone with an interest in tobacco and nicotine research - whether researcher, student, government official or journalist - will find this site to be a rich source of information and a key resource for advancing their studies.
