Welcome to the ACE Project!Antecedents and Consequences of Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems Project
The Antecedents and Consequences of Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems Project (ACE Project) is a 5-year project through Florida’s first Health Disparities Research Center at a Minority Institution (RCMI) funded by the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD/NIH). The ACE Project examines risk and protective factors that lead to electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) usage (e.g. e-cigarettes, vaping, etc.) among teenagers and the impact of ENDS usage on the developing brain.
The project is a collaboration with an interdisciplinary team led by Dr. Elisa Trucco, Director of the Research on Adolescent and Child Health (REACH) laboratory and Dr. Matthew Sutherland, Director of the Neuroinformatics and Brain Connectivity (NBC) laboratory.
