Our Structure

Three major cores and four research projects will constitute the proposed TCORS. The Administrative Core provides a structural organization to facilitate administrative and scientific oversight as well as timely and efficient communication and integrative links among all Cores and Projects. It will also serve as the direct recipient of input from the National Tobacco regulatory Science Network, which we define as FDA Center for Tobacco Products staff, NIH/TRSP program staff, Center for Coordination of Analytics, Science, Enhancement, and Logistics (CASEL), and other TCORSs, and External Advisory Board (EAB).

The University of Southern California's Tobacco Center of Regulatory Science (USC TCORS) for Vulnerable Populations is one of 9 Tobacco Centers of Regulatory Science in the U.S. We were created to serve in the production of relevant scientific data to inform the regulatory decision making at the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) Center for Tobacco Products. Additionally, we are here to educate and train the next generation of tobacco regulatory scientists.
