Tobacco Research and Intervention Program (TRIP)

The Tobacco Research and Intervention Program (TRIP) is a research program of Moffitt Cancer Center.

TRIP has three interconnected missions:

  • Research - The primary mission of TRIP is to conduct high-quality research on psychosocial and behavioral factors that contribute to tobacco use, and on the development and evaluation of improved and novel methods of tobacco use, prevention and cessation.  See the Research page for further information.
  • Service - TRIP also provides service to the Tampa Bay community and throughout Florida through its tobacco control programs, such as the Forever Free smoking cessation clinic.  In addition, faculty and staff from TRIP provide consultation and education on tobacco-related matters throughout the state and nation.
  • Teaching - TRIP offers a supervised training environment for college undergraduates, doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows pursuing interests in tobacco research, psychology and behavioral medicine.
