Raphael Lencucha worked with the Globalization and Health Equity team as a postdoctoral fellow (2009-2010) supported by the Social Science and Humanities Research Council. During his tenure he worked closely with Ronald Labonte and Katia Mohindra on various projects examining the relationship between chronic disease and international trade. His work focused particularly on the pathways that link the trade in tobacco (e.g. the regulation of tobacco trade) and chronic disease. Dr. Lencucha also conducted research on the political and sociological dimensions of the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control and the issue of health and foreign policy. He continues this and other work as an Assistant Professor at the University of Lethbridge.
