The Tobacco Regulatory Science Program (TRSP) is an interagency partnership between the NIH and the FDA Center for Tobacco Products to foster tobacco regulatory research.
With the passage of the 2009 Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (Tobacco Control Act), the FDA acquired the authority to regulate the manufacture, marketing, and distribution of tobacco products in order to protect public health. Within the framework of the Tobacco Control Act, the NIH and FDA formed this partnership to establish a comprehensive research agenda in tobacco regulatory science.

FDA and NIH have awarded the Center for Rapid Surveillance of Tobacco (CRST). Through rapid surveillance and reporting of information, CRST will enhance the FDA Center for Tobacco Products’ (CTP) and the research community’s ability to understand, document, and quantify changes in the tobacco product marketplace and tobacco use patterns to inform tobacco product regulatory activities. CRST is administered through a cooperative agreement under award number U01CA278695, Rutgers Center of Excellence in Rapid Surveillance of Tobacco. It will be led by Cristine Delnevo, Ph.D., at Rutgers University, with substantial involvement from six sentinel states, CDC, NIH, and CTP scientific staff, as well as external advisors with relevant expertise.
