    I donated, and am expressing my gratitude in this post, but it's simply not enough.

    I can't even begin to thank you for all you're doing for our community.

    Welcome to the ECF, Dr. Farsalinos, and many thanks for all your hard work!

    One question I have - has anyone studied the effect of vapor on the bacteria and viruses in breath? It seems like I get fewer colds, etc. since I switched to vaping over 4 years ago, so I wonder if an e-cig user's breath is any cleaner in that regard.

    I learned about this project from watching Vape Team Live podcast (same as above) and as a DIY I really would like to know just what it is I'm buying. I donated right after the show was over.

    Is there a written overview or proposal out there somewhere for this current study? If there is I'm not finding it and only getting obtuse messages about "things we are all concerned about" or are supposed to know we are supposed to be concerned about. Looking for a write up of the specifics of what this current research is looking for in liquids.

    I can't thank you enough for everything you do for this industry and the vaping community. It's people like you who will win this war we are all in. The truth is the best weapon we have.

    Konstantinos Farsalinos posted an announcement 3 days ago [on the indiegogo site]:

    Announcement

    As you may have seen, we have reached our funding goal. We thank everyone for their support. We are not waiting for the campaign to end; we are already collecting samples from all over the world, which will be sent for testing. We will increase the number of samples tested. Additionally, the extra funding allows us to test some samples on vapor, which will give us crucial information. Finally, in case we have enough funds by the end of the crowdfunding campaign, we are going to proceed with another protocol (from the many we have already designed but were unable to perform due to lack of funding).Therefore...

    I encourage you to continue sharing and discussing about this crowdfunding campaign to the social media and websites. All funds will be used for research (for this and other projects). During 2013 we published 7 studies in peer-review journals and we presented more in international medical conferences. We believe our research had a significant impact in tobacco harm reduction and e-cigarettes field. We want to continue in this way during 2014. The more funds we get, the more research we are going to perform.

    We thank you for your amazing support and we hope you will continue to support us.

    I'm with Rickajho.

    Could someone point us somewhere where we can get an overview of what EXACTLY this is going to uncover, what the goals are and how they will impact manufacturing and sales and a timeline of when we can expect results and disclosure?

    This is obviously very exciting for vapers (or not, depending on the results) but I would love to see the parameters and goals if they are out there.
