UConn to host cannabis research symposium

The University of Connecticut will hold a symposium on March 16-17 that will enable the business community, scientists, scholars and students to share information on the emerging field of cannabis research.

Topics covered during the symposium will include cannabis genetics and biology, clinical applications of cannabis, enhancing cannabis production and cannabis law. The event will be held at UConn’s Storrs campus and registration can be completed on the school’s website.

“UConn has been a leader in cannabis research for some time,” said S. Pamir Alpay, interim vice president for research. “We are hopeful that this conference will serve as a nexus for conversation and networking between industry and academia.”
