Receiving the Addiction Science Award definitely validated continuing my research endeavors. My research was published in a peer-reviewed journal, which has opened the doors to the tobacco research community. Currently, my career goals are still hazy, but I definitely want to continue my research as I pursue medicine.


About the Project:

Lily examined whether e-cigarette use could pose a risk of third hand exposure, where nicotine from vapors sticks to surfaces to affect non-users even if they aren’t exposed to the e-cigarette use.
