Time: 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Abstract

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.
