Recent Trends in Tobacco and Tobacco Smoke Research

  • Helmut Wakeham


The excuse for a research director to review before his scientific peers recent progress in the field of his own program does not come often. It is an opportunity not to be missed. In many ways it is more challenging than presenting the program to management who foots the bill. It has the advantage of putting one’s own program into better perspective. Any research group tends to become so engrossed in its own work that it overlooks peripheral areas of work — we see the trees and forget to look at the forest. Frankly, I am not sure my associates have appreciated my involvement in this symposium. In the course of my preparation I have suggested some gaps in our own program which they should be exploring.
