      The Department of Biochemistry-Biotechnology, Postgraduate Program “Toxicology” of the University of Thessaly, and the Laboratory of Molecular Biology and Immunology, Department of Pharmacy of the University of Patras organized for the third consecutive year, the Scientific Summit on Tobacco Harm Reduction - Novel products, Research & Policy, in collaboration with the Department of Public & Community Health, University of West Attica, Athens, and the 2nd Cardiology Dept., University Hospital Attikon, Medical School, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens.    The COVID-19 pandemic and the high risk of a second wave contributed to their decision that the 3rd Scientific Summit on Tobacco Harm Reduction become virtual. The organizers aim to attract top researchers, clinicians, and scientists from diverse fields, from around the world, to contribute to the 3rd Scientific Summit on Tobacco Harm Reduction. The frequency of alternative tobacco product use (e-cigarettes, Heat-not-Burn products, loose leaf, snus, etc.) among smokers and the association with switch and quit attempts is increasing; the scientific community is debating, in an attempt to explain the benefits and the risks associated with these products. Health issues are emerging that demand more research and sound interpretation of research and clinical data. Click here to watch the presentations
