Kurt Ribisl's primary research interests are in the areas of tobacco control policy and information technology (e.g., the Internet, Geographic Information Systems [GIS]). Specifically, he has studied tobacco industry marketing strategies in retail outlets, interventions to reduce youth access to tobacco, and portrayals of smoking on the internet. He has also examined whether Internet cigarette vendors are complying with tax reporting laws and whether they are taking adequate precautions to prevent illegal tobacco sales to minors. Dr. Ribisl also serves as the Director of Cancer Prevention and Control for the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center.
