University of Minnesota School of Public Health (SPH) Assistant Professor Dana Carroll has received the Society for Research on Nicotine & Tobacco’s (SRNT)  Jarvik-Russell New Investigator Award, which recognizes early-career scientists and SRNT members who have made extraordinary contributions to the field of nicotine and tobacco research.

With members in more than 40 countries, SRNT is the only professional association dedicated exclusively to the support of researchers, academics, treatment professionals, government employees, and others working across disciplines in the field of nicotine and tobacco research.

Carroll’s research focuses on addressing commercial tobacco use disparities, particularly among American Indian populations. She has forged multiple partnerships with tribal leaders, nonprofit organizations, minority health clinics, and other researchers and community members dedicated to advancing health equity.

Carroll has received widespread recognition for her research efforts, including a White House brief in 2023 highlighting her contributions to co-creating smoking cessation resources for American Indian persons as part of the Biden-Harris Administration’s Cancer Moonshot Agenda to end cancer. She has received multiple research grants from NIH to continue her research and outreach engagement with the American Indian community and tribal partners.

SRNT’s mission is to stimulate the generation and dissemination of new knowledge concerning nicotine in all its manifestations. The organization pursues its mission by hosting an annual scientific conference, and by providing an outlet for publication of cutting edge research through its scientific journal, Nicotine & Tobacco Research, which is published by Oxford University Press.

Carroll received the award at SRNT’s 2024 conference. As part of her research support, she was also able to fund two community partners from the American Indian Cancer Foundation and the Native American Community Clinic to attend this year’s conference.
