RICHMOND, Va. • The Food and Drug Administration and the National Institutes of Health are awarding millions in funding to create 14 centers to conduct research on tobacco products.

Officials said Thursday that the agencies have awarded up to $53 million for fiscal 2013 for the Tobacco Centers of Regulatory Science, mostly at universities around the country.

The centers can eventually receive more than $273 million over the next five years for research on marketing of tobacco products, adverse health consequences, ways to reduce addiction and toxicity, as well as so-called modified risk tobacco products.

The federal agencies say the centers will help shape regulations on tobacco products with the aim of protecting the public health and reducing the death and disease caused by tobacco use.
