The Global Forum on Nicotine recognises the contribution that early career researchers are making to improve our understanding of nicotine science and policy. Many examples of new studies conducted by post-doctoral scholars, research fellows and early career clinicians have been published in the past year. At the 2017 conference the scientific committee will be reviewing the abstracts submitted by researchers within 10 years of their PhD, or equivalent professional experience, in order to select a recipient for the GFN 2017 'Outstanding Early Career Researcher Award'. Please indicate on your abstract submission if you meet this criterion.
