Vaping-Associated Lung Injury: Insight into Mechanisms of Action


Dr. Drew Marquardt

University of Windsor

Lung injury from vaping was established as an epidemic mere months before the COVID pandemic struck and since then has largely flown under the radar. Yet there’s been a surge in young people aged 18 to 30 who are vaping and a large number of them are getting sick, so this research project is interested in how ingredients like Vitamin E acetate interact with the lungs, contributing to this dangerous alveolar, or lung, injury. This research will help pinpoint which ingredients found in vapes and e-cigarettes are contributing to severe lung illness in users.
