Government funding will be provided to the UK Centre for Tobacco Control Studies, coordinated by Nottingham, to drive six pilot studies across the country aimed at encouraging vulnerable sectors of society to stop smoking. Researchers at Nottingham will be involved in each pilot and will lead on a project focused on helping people with serious mental illness to tackle their tobacco dependence. Research will also take place at University College London, which will focus on services for children; Queen Mary, University of London, where studies will investigate relapse prevention and smokeless-tobacco use; the University of Bath, which will concentrate on services for pregnant women; and the universities of Central Lancashire and Stirling, which will focus on services for prisoners.
