Welcome to the Center for the Evaluation of Nicotine in Cigarettes (CENIC) Website!

The overarching goal of CENIC is to determine how marked reduction in the nicotine content of cigarettes impacts the use and effects of tobacco in current smokers. Our research includes human and animal trials.

This website includes all of CENIC’s projects. For each project, you will be able to review the study goals, access contact information, and download study documents. For certain projects, staff can randomize participants, view study reports, and access data.
