Addictive Carcinogens Workgroup

April 17, 11:00am - 12:00pm
Mānoa Campus, 701 Ilalo Street Conference Room 401, UHCC

Tobacco, alcoholic beverages, and betel quid and areca nut (known as betel nut) are carcinogenic to humans and independently cause various types of cancer (e.g. lung, oral, esophageal). These carcinogens are addictive or contain substances such as nicotine that make them addictive.

The purpose of the working group is to foster research collaborations across the university to stimulate multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary science; serve as a venue for developing innovative research grants and publications; and use research findings to reduce the burden of addictive substances that cause cancer and other chronic disease disparities.

Please join us if you are interested in being part of an exciting research workgroup!
