Endowed Chair in Tobacco Harm Reduction Research

School of Medicine

Established April 2005


The endowed chair and research funds were created by the Brown Cancer Center using more than $3 million in unrestricted gifts by U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company and Swedish Match North America, Inc. to the University of Louisville. The sponsors have no influence over the chair holder’s research. The funds and the chair are part of the “Finding Answers to Cancer” campaign.

This commitment has been matched in part by the state’s Research Challenge Trust Fund.
