Role of antioxidant and detoxification defense mechanisms in e-cigarettes induced oxidative stress
Specific aims of this project are: (1) to investigate if e-cigs impair NRFZ regulation of antioxidant, detoxification, and inflammatory responses in the lung cells; and (2) to determine whether sulforaphane can reverse e-cig induced oxidative stress and inflammation in mouse lungs.

Biological impact of exclusive and dual e-cigarette use on oral cancer risk
Multi-Institutional study aiming: (1) to assess the genotoxic and mutagenic effects of e-cigs in exclusive and dual, e-cigs and combustible tobacco, users; (2) to characterize the impact of e-cigs use on oral mucosa transcriptome; and (3) to dissect the effect of e-cigs aerosol constituents on cellular genotoxicity and DNA repair capacity.

Examination of First and Second Generation E-cigarettes                                    
Dr. Queimado is the PI in charge of Aim 3. Specific aims are: (1) to assess the effect of provision of G1 vs. G2 e-cigs on product switching/substitution, abuse liability, number of cigarettes smoked, and perceived nicotine dependence; (2) to evaluate changes in biomarkers of harmful tobacco constituent exposure among participants assigned to G1, G2, and UBC; and (3) to evaluate changes in biomarkers of toxicant effect among participants assigned to G1, G2, and UBC.

A Phase II Trial of Bevacizumab and Rucaparib in Recurrent Carcinoma of the Cervix or Endometrium
Multi-Institutional study to determine whether the combination of rucaparib and bevacizumab will produce synergistic anti-cancer effect and increase progression-free survival (PFS) in patients with the carcinoma of the cervix or endometrium. The translational objective of this study is to determine whether the level of DNA damage in patient tumor biopsies is associated with response, PFS, and/or overall survival.
