Research Aims

ITRG research has been published in several peer-review publications within Iran and internationally. This innovative work includes the first ever analysis of the political economy of smoking in Iran, as well as Iran’s first clinical trial for the provision of smoking cessation treatment during the course of drug addiction therapy. Our associates seek to develop unique approaches of study in order to gain a comprehensive picture of smoking in Iran.

Our topics of exploration include, but are not limited to, the following subjects as they pertain to Iran:

•Commercial Markets for Tobacco Products
•Political Economy of Cigarette Consumption
•Tobacco Smuggling
•Cigarettes and Public Health
•Tobacco Cessation Strategies
•Governmental Policy and Legal Issues
•Cultural Representations of Cigarettes

We welcome inquiries for research collaboration from the academic and medical communities.
