Dr. Laura Struik, IHLCDP Associate and Assistant Professor in the School of Nursing, is among 15 researchers from across Canada who have earned an Emerging Scholar Award from the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS). This award program was established by the CCS to support promising early career scientists to undertake cancer research. Over the next 5 years, Dr. Struik will undertake research to identify new approaches to addressing tobacco use in the next millennium. This research aims to reduce tobacco-related cancer risk, and contribute to a much-needed evidence-base for reaching the 2035 goal of less than 5% of tobacco use in Canada.
