Dr Veronica Boland has worked in the nicotine and tobacco research area for over six years and was successfully awarded her PhD in 2018. Her research is focussed on smoking and social disadvantage where her work is embedded with high consumer engagement and aims to improve delivery of new and enhanced evidence-based cessation strategies for disadvantaged smokers. Continuing this focus, Veronica commenced a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in early 2018 on a National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) funded randomised controlled trial (RCT) at the University of New South Wales, National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre, Australia. This RCT aims to compare continuous smoking abstinence rates and short-term safety between nicotine replacement therapy and vaporised nicotine products among low-socioeconomic status smokers.
