Dr. Hovell is Professor at San Diego State University’s School of Public Healththe founding Director of the Center for Behavioral Epidemiology and Community Health (CBEACH), and a full member of the Cancer Center at University of California, San DiegoDr. Hovell is the former and founding Head of the Division of Health Promotion. Dr. Hovell’s research focuses on the etiology of health-related behavior following the Behavioral Ecological Modelincluding studies of classic risk practices, such as diet and physical activity, as well as studies of clinicians’ service delivery. His research also addresses means by which the influence of and change in culture can be achieved to establish healthy practices in whole populations. His work investigation of secondhand smoke exposure reduction for children leto him, along with Dr. Georg Matt, to “discover” thirdhand smoke when he explored nicotine in homes as an explanation of variance in secondhand smoke exposure. 

Dr. Hovell is a Co-Investigator of the Thirdhand Smoke Dissemination, Outreach, and Resource Center (THSRC). In this role he will contribute to the translation of thirdhand smoke research findings to real-world settings to disseminate findings and improve public health. 

Dr. Hovell spends is free time wedding his 3.5 acres of hillside in Jamul Ca. This is critical as he has two large German Shepherds that can get lost for days at a time in the head high weeds. Fortunately, they can take care of themselves relatively well, partly because tomatoes secured from Dr. Georg Matt keeps them healthy.

Dr. Manuela Martins-Green is a Professor of Cell Biology and Chair of the Department of Molecular, Cell and Systems Biology at the University of California, Riverside. Dr. Martins-Green’s research focuses on cell and molecular mechanisms involved in response to injury caused by exposure to toxins and by mechanical/chemical/heat injuries. 

In her role as the PI of the project “Translating Mouse Exposure Studies into Human Health Effects”, Dr. Martins-Green is studying the effects tobacco toxicants, specifically of thirdhand smoke (Third Hand Smoke) toxins on the function of various tissues, in particular liver and muscle. Her group has discovered that exposure of mice to Third Hand Smoke for significant periods of time caused hyperactivity. These studies contributed to the legislation in California to pass Assembly Bill 1819 Chapter 459 which prohibits smoking in the homes of private child care providers, inside and outside, during service hours and outside service hours. At the cellular level her group has discovered that the major effects of THS are on the mitochondria, the organelles in the cell that produce the energy necessary for cell function. They are currently determining whether these effects are transmitted to the next generation when parents are exposed to THS. In addition, with current funding provided to the Consortium her group is performing studies using samples from children to determine whether living in the homes of smokers will cause them to show more propensity to elevation of specific markers of disease.

Dr. Mao is a geneticist senior scientist in the Biological Systems and Engineering Division, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and adjunct professor of Comparative Biochemistry Program, University of California Berkeley. His research focuses on the use of population-based and genetically engineered mouse models to investigate genetic susceptibility for cancer and other phenotypes under different environmental exposures including THS, and an integrative multi-omics approach to discover cancer genes and the biomarkers for cancer risk, diagnosis, prognosis and therapy, ultimately leading to precision risk assessment, prevention and treatment.

Dr. Mao serves as co-investigator in THS Consortium grant, the principle investigator of which is Dr. Bo Hang, to identify how the interactions of functional genetic polymorphisms with THS exposure contribute to disease susceptibility using genetically diverse Collaborative Cross mouse models, together with Omics analyses. Identifying the human homologs of these mouse genes will ultimately define the contribution of THS to human cancer etiology.

Dr. Penelope JE (Jenny) Quintana is Professor of Public Health and Associate Director for Student Affairs at San Diego State University School of Public Health. She has an M.P.H. from San Diego State University and a Ph.D. in Environmental Health Sciences from UC Berkeley. She has a research focus on environmental justice in relation to exposures to children and vulnerable populations at the US-Mexico border. She studies children’s exposure to toxicants in house dust and on surfaces, such as residual tobacco toxicants remaining after smoking has taken place, known as thirdhand smoke. She applies emerging technologies to assess environmental health problems, such as silicone wristbands for measuring carcinogen exposures in children from thirdhand smoke, and low-cost air sensors deployed in Tijuana at sensitive receptor sites. She studies air pollution arising from the long northbound wait times and lines of idling vehicles at US-Mexico Ports of Entry, exposing border crossers and surrounding communities to traffic pollutants. She is a Scientific Guidance Panel member for the California Environmental Contaminant Biomonitoring Program (https://biomonitoring.ca.gov/). As a member of
the Thirdhand Smoke Research Consortium, she also serves as a lead researcher with the Thirdhand Smoke Resource Center (www.thirdhandsmoke.org).

Dr. Snijders joined the Cancer Research Institute at the University of California, San Francisco as a postdoctoral scholar in 2005, after which he moved to the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. He is Chair of the BioEngineering and BioMedical Science Department. Dr Snijders’s research goals are to understand cancer tumorigenesis specifically addressing key questions concerning the contribution of host genetics, environmental exposures (including thirdhand smoke), and their interactions in cancer risk and tumor progression.

Dr. Snijder’s laboratory uses a systems biology approach, together with novel mouse models to identify genetic networks controlling susceptibility to cancer risk. The broad and long-term goals of his laboratory are to identify how the interactions of combinations of genes and their functional polymorphisms and environmental exposures contribute to disease susceptibility of individual human subjects. His lab exploits the power of mouse genetics using Collaborative Cross mice, together with Omics analyses to determine the influence of individual variations in disease susceptibility. This comprehensive systems biology approach will likely identify specific genes or pathways that are differentially controlled between mouse strains, and contribute to human variation in susceptibility to thirdhand smoke-induced carcinogenesis.

Dr. Ramírez research focuses on three main pillars:  The development of MS-based analytical methods in the benchmark of Environmental toxicology and health. The better characterization of THS chemical composition using targeted and untargeted approaches. And the application of omics sciences, specially metabolomics, to determining the health effects derived from the exposure to THS toxicants in animal models (mice and zebrafish embryos) and in young children.

Since 2015, Dr. Ramírez have collaborated with different researchers of the Consortium. Together with Dr. Martins-Green, Dr. Ramirez applies metabolomics to unravel the molecular mechanisms of THS-exposure induced diseases in mice models. She also works with Dr. Destaillats and Dr. Gundel on the characterization of the different chemical composition during tobacco smoke ageing. She has also collaborated with Dr. Schick on the characterization of possible metabolic alterations in human blood after controlled exposure to aged sidestream cigarette smoke.

When Dr. Ramírez is not busy with her research and students, she loves travelling, meeting new places, cultures and people, a passion that shares with her husband and her twin daughters.

Dr. Tang is a Senior Scientific Engineering Associate in the Indoor Environment Group of the Energy Analysis and Environmental Impacts Division in the Energy Technology Area of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Her research focuses on the sources and chemistry of airborne indoor pollutants, indoor air quality, exposure, and health effect.

Dr. Tang is a co-Investigator of a Consortium subproject led by the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory which focuses on thirdhand smoke chemistry, exposure assessment, sampling methods, and remediation technologies. Her main role in the project is to lead the development and validation of a low-cost thirdhand smoke sampler, which measures indoor airborne nicotine concentration as a metric to quantify thirdhand smoke contamination. Successful adoption of such tools by non-professional community users could generate a large volume of data enabling the development of thirdhand smoke contamination scales, rating/labeling systems, and other quantitative tools to support informed decisions. Dr. Tang is also studying the efficiency and potential risks associated with ozonation as a thirdhand smoke remediation approach.

When not doing research in the lab, Dr. Tang enjoys exploring new restaurants and hiking in the beautiful mountains in California.

Dr. Winickoff is a practicing pediatrician at Massachusetts General Hospital and Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Winickoff’s research focuses on strategies to address tobacco use and exposure in families and has led to the creation of the Clinical Effort Against Secondhand Smoke Exposure (CEASE) program which has incorporated the thirdhand smoke concept into clinical pediatrics.  

Dr. Winickoff’s team coined the term “thirdhand smoke” in 2005 and his promotion of the concept of residual tobacco smoke contamination as “thirdhand smoke” was recognized as the health idea of the year by the New York Times in 2009. As a national expert, Dr. Winickoff has collaborated with the Thirdhand Smoke Consortium in developing actionable strategies for health care practitioners to address thirdhand smoke and integrating the thridhand smoke concept into tobacco control activities. He is a frequent national and international speaker on the topic of thirdhand smoke and children.
