Dr Nicola Lindson-Hawley and Dr Rachna Begh led the recent UK Centre for Tobacco and Alcohol Studies (UKCTAS) early-career researcher conference in Leeds this month.

UKCTAS is a network of 13 universities (12 in UK, 1 in New Zealand) funded by the UK Clinical Research Collaboration. The centre aims to deliver an international research and policy development portfolio, and build capacity in tobacco and alcohol research. Part of this mission is achieved through fostering the development of new researchers.

The Early-Career Research Conference, which took place in Leeds on 18 June, was attended by 50 PhD and post-doc delegates, and included talks from experts across the fields of tobacco and alcohol research.

Dr Jamie Hartmann-Boyce, also of the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, presented a discourse analysis on the tobacco industry and personal responsibility for health in the US in the 1950s and 1960s.
