Video: Tobacco Researcher Interview—Baseline Biomarkers of HPHCs in Tobacco Smoke and Smokeless Tobacco, Ben Blount, Ph.D.
Establishing Baseline Levels of Biomarkers of HPHCs in Tobacco Smoke and Smokeless Tobacco Products
Ben Blount, Ph.D.
Dr. Blount and his team at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are focused on applying “gold standard” analytical methods to characterizing tobacco products, including research on tobacco smoke and aerosol emitted from products, including cigars, pipes, smokeless tobacco, and e-cigarettes to understand how people are actually using these products.
The opinions in these videos reflect the views of individual researchers, and not necessarily the official position of the FDA’s Center for Tobacco Products. These videos represent accurate information about the design of these CTP supported studies at the time the interviews were conducted (Spring 2014).
