Author Biography

Jeffrey Drope's research focuses on the nexus of public health (including tobacco control, harmful alcohol use, nutrition, and access to care) and economic policymaking, especially trade, investment and taxation. His work seeks to integrate the two different policy areas in proactive ways that engender both improved public health outcomes and economic prosperity. Recent funding support comes from the National Institutes of Health (National Institute for Drug Abuse, Fogarty International Center and the National Cancer Institute), the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (with funds from the Bloomberg Initiative to Reduce Tobacco Use), the National Science Foundation, and the International Development Research Centre. In addition to extensively publishing in these substantive areas, including as co-author of the most recent Tobacco Atlas, he participates actively in capacity-building efforts across the globe, working with major inter-governmental organizations, non-governmental organizations, national governments and many educational institutions. Currently, Dr. Drope is spearheading a multi-country initiative on the economics of tobacco farming in low- and middle-income countries. He is also an associate professor of political science at Marquette University, where he regularly teaches and mentors students on global health and development. Neil Schluger is Chief Scientific Officer of World Lung Foundation as well as Chief of the Division of Pulmonary, Allergy and Critical Care Medicine at the Columbia University Medical Center, and Professor of Medicine, Epidemiology and Environmental Health Science at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and Columbia's Mailman School of Public Health.
