Research Participants Wanted

Do you smoke or vape?

Our research group is looking for smokers, who have also used e-cigarettes and would be interested in helping us learn more about how, when, and where people use e-cigarettes. We want to learn more about smokers’ experiences with non-cigarette tobacco products and how their use fits into their daily lives.

Participants in the study will complete interviews daily on a handheld computer for 7-days on two occasions over a 12-month period; participants will also complete two questionnaires and brief email surveys as part of the study. Study visits will be held at the Institute for Health Research & Policy at UIC. Participants will be compensated for their time.

To participate you must be:

  • 18 years of age or older
  • Someone who smokes traditional cigarettes, and has used an e-cigarette
  • Willing to carry a handheld computer and complete short surveys for 7 days
  • Be able to complete questionnaires in person at our UIC research office

If you are interested in participating, please complete a short online survey to determine if you are eligible.

You can access the survey at:

Call the UIC Tobacco Research Group at (312) 996-4528, if you have any questions about the study.
