Dr. Rose’s research focuses on policy approaches to reducing disparities in tobacco use, and her interests include point of sale marketing, advertising, distribution in neighborhoods, the amount of tobacco products used by individuals, and the challenges associated with quitting. Dr. Rose has published over 40 publications in peer-reviewed journals, and is currently the Principal Investigator on two National Institutes of Health (NIH) grants examining menthol cigarettes and flavored tobacco use.
