News from BAT Research & Development
British American Tobacco’s 2015 Science & Technology Report details significant strides in the science of tobacco harm reduction made by BAT’s R&D department over the last year.
The impact of e-cigarettes was recently explored in BBC’s Horizon documentary, E-cigarettes: Miracle or Menace?, which concluded that e-cigarettes could benefit public health.
BAT presented its experience and approach to using biomarkers to assess the reduced-risk potential of novel tobacco and nicotine products at the US Food and Drug Administration’s workshop Biomarkers of Potential Harm (April 4-5).
Against a backdrop of a growing number of e-cigarette users globally*, British American Tobacco (BAT) is leading efforts to develop and harmonise standards around vaping products to further reassure consumers of these products potential in reducing the harm from smoking.
As part of our open and transparent approach, we have designed an interactive visitor exhibit to showcase our science. Our exhibit room, R&D Live, puts you in direct conversation with our scientists as they explain the concept of their work.
