An assistant professor of physiology at the University of Louisville medical school, was reportedly approached by a medical liaison for Juul who said collaborating with the company could be worth up to $200,000.

Juul recently launched a science website promoting its research grants. So far, Juul has reported funding studies only by the Centre for Substance Use Research, based in Scotland, and collaborating with a few independent labs.
