Public health schools at 17 universities in the U.S. and Canada say they won't accept research money from the Foundation for a Smoke-Free World because of its ties to the tobacco industry. The foundation was created in September with nearly $1 billion from the Philip Morris tobacco company but says it won't be influenced by the industry. These are the schools that signed a letter opposing the group: — University of Alberta — University of Colorado — Florida International University — Harvard University — University of Illinois-Chicago — Indiana University — Johns Hopkins University — University of Kentucky — Loma Linda University — University of Maryland — University of Minnesota — Ohio State University — Rutgers University — University of South Carolina — Tulane University — West Virginia University — University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
