Archived Seminar: Unlocking the Neurodevelopmental Effects of Cannabis and Relevance to Psychiatric Risk
Pioneers in Biomedical Research Seminar presented by the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at VTC
The sociopolitical landscape has dramatically changed regarding the medical and recreational use of cannabis. This talk will provide insights about advances made about the molecular underpinnings of developmental cannabis/THC exposure that maintains a long-term impact on adult behavior. The research describes translational and multidisciplinary scientific approaches ranging from molecular and epigenetic studies in animal models to investigations in human subjects.
This is a free event hosted by the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute and co-sponsored by the institute's Center for Human Neuroscience Research. The Fralin Biomedical Research Institute Pioneers in Biomedical Research Program offers the expertise of a range of scientists who are exploring frontiers in biomedical research. These seminars are open to Virginia Tech and Carilion Clinic faculty, students, and staff.
