McMaster University researchers have been chosen for one of two Canadian studies that are part of a global research consortium into the prevention and management of chronic lung diseases.
Emmanuel Guindon is an assistant professor of clinical epidemiology and biostatistics.
He is leading research on the impact of taxation and packaging policies and whether it can reduce tobacco use among low- and middle-income countries.
Guindon’s study is one of 13 international research projects worth a total of $72.5 million over the next three to five years announced today by the Global Alliance for Chronic Diseases.
The projects focus on chronic lung diseases in low and middle income countries, vulnerable populations in high income countries and aboriginal communities.
