New SRNT University Offers Certificate Program and Library Collection

The Society for Research on Nicotine and Tobacco (SRNT) has launched a new online education platform, SRNT University. “SRNT-U” is a collection of organized, curated training, scientific articles, and tools and resources for people working in nicotine and tobacco research and related professions. 

Developed by more than 140 SRNT volunteers from 20 countries (including a focus group of Global Bridges grantees), SRNT-U is an information hub for students, early-career researchers and anyone new to nicotine and tobacco research. It’s also a resource for more experienced professionals seeking to expand their knowledge about specific areas of nicotine and tobacco research.

Most content is free to access, but you must log in as an SRNT member or create a free non-member guest account to access content.

Key SRNT-U offerings include:

  • SRNT’s Smoking Cessation Research Certificate Program:  introductory-level training on research methods suitable for smoking cessation treatment research, along with relevant background information. Rasha Bader, Operations Manager, EMR for Global Bridges co-chairs SRNT-U’s Certificate Program Team.
  • the SRNT-U Library: links to hundreds of items related to nicotine and tobacco research, from SRNT and other organizations, organized by topic or discipline.
  • the Research Methodologies and Skills section of the Library: links to information and training on a full range of research methodologies and skills, from identifying a research question through to presenting study results.

SRNT-U also has links to SRNT webinars and conference plenary sessions, as well as selected content from SRNT’s journal Nicotine & Tobacco Research.

We encourage you to create a free account, log in and explore SRNT University. Content will be added periodically, so bookmark the site and check back often to see what’s new!
