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.

- The Tobacco Regulatory Science R01 has been reissued with new research priorities. The next application date is February 13, 2020.
- There are new R21 RFAs supporting research using existing and datasets and biospecimen collections. The next application dates are July 20, 2020 and August 7, 2020 respectively.
-Selected resources are available for FOAs including FAQs and recorded pre-application webinars.
