Jean King has worked in tobacco control at Cancer Research UK for the past 24 years. She developed the Code of Practice on Tobacco Industry Funding for Research, which prohibits those in receipt of tobacco funds from receiving CR-UK grants, and the Tobacco Advisory Group that supports research and advocacy in key policy areas. With the American Cancer Society, she set up FCTC awards and the Africa Tobacco Control Regional Initiative. With other founding members, she helped establish the EU Smoke Free Partnership. In 2012 she was honoured with 2 awards: a WHO World No Tobacco Day award for work on preventing tobacco industry interference, and an honorary doctorate from the University of Stirling.

The Smoke Free Partnership receives operational funding from the European Commission. The views expressed in this website do not necessarily reflect the official views of the EU institutions.
