Innovations in the Science of Cannabis Conference

The Michael G. DeGroote Centre for Medicinal Cannabis Research is hosting its first conference in winter 2018. The event will create a forum to share results from ongoing research efforts of the Centre’s associated faculty members and bring together world-class experts in the fields of addictions, mental health, pain, economics, policy and other areas of research to discuss work to advance the understanding of medicinal cannabis. Trainees will have opportunities to share research projects through poster presentations. Instructions on how to register can be found below the poster.
