Research Overview from research@st-andrews

Since joining the Child and Adolescent Research Unit (CAHRU) at the University of St Andrews in July 2014, she has been involved in a multi-university National Institute of Health Research funded study called DISPLAY (Determining the Impact of Smoking Point-of-sale Legislation among Youth). This study aims to evaluate the impact of Scottish legislation to ban point of sale tobacco advertising on young people's exposure to tobacco advertising, their attitude towards smoking and their smoking behaviour.
