Oxford Tobacco Addiction Group (OXTAG)
Our group produces primary research and systematic reviews of the evidence on interventions to prevent and treat tobacco addiction. This includes interventions for smoking cessation, for preventing smoking uptake, and public policy interventions for reducing smoking prevalence.
WHO WE ARE
We are a group of researchers and doctoral students based within the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine and the Interdisciplinary Research in Health Sciences team at the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, chaired by Dr Nicola Lindson. We work together to produce research that reduces the burden of tobacco use and smoking-related disease.
