News from BAT Research & Development
We have launched an app of our Science and Technology Report expanding on our print report with additional multimedia, including video interviews with some of our key scientists.
Tobacco heating devices, which work by heating tobacco sufficiently to release nicotine but not high enough to burn, may provide an alternative tobacco experience that in the long term may prove to be less harmful than cigarette smoking.
The Ames test, a widely used method to determine whether a chemical has the potential to cause cancer, has been successfully adapted for use with cigarette smoke and other complex aerosols.
We strive to be open and transparent about our science, presenting regularly throughout the year at scientific conferences and meetings. View the material we’ve presented already or see where we'll be attending next.
We are at the forefront in developing a portfolio of potential reduced-risk next-generation products, including e-cigarettes and tobacco heating systems. Find out what a day in the life of our journey is like.
