Check out our research projects designed and executed by SU students!
Kinesiology graduate Alicia Peters completed her capstone research project investigating the effects of vaping on adolescent rat lung function and circulating inflammatory cytokines.
"It has been amazing getting to continue to do research with Dr. Stokes as part of my capstone project. In this study, we completed a 2 week long vape exposure that assessed the effects of vaping on lung function and the inflammatory markers in the blood. This study is slightly different from the first one I completed with Dr. Stokes in the summer of 2021 (in both the age of the rats and the length of the study), so it has been interesting to see the differing results between the two studies! I am also super excited about our study as we got to work with adolescent aged rats, which is a demographic that vaping usage is most popular."
