TRIP offers several opportunities for smokers in the community and nationwide to participate in research. The nature of these studies changes over time. Some studies might take less than an hour while others might be ongoing for months. Participation may involve being interviewed, completing questionnaires and laboratory tasks, and/or smoking in the laboratory. Participants are often paid for their participation. Below are the ongoing studies, some of which are open to recruitment.
