UC Cannabis Research Workshop
In partnership with colleagues at UCI, the UC Office of the President invites you to the UC Cannabis Research Workshop on Thursday, May 30, 2019 from 10 am - 4 pm at the Irvine campus. The UC Cannabis Research Workshop is a one-day successor meeting to the March 2018 workshop entitled, “Policy and Legal Issues Related to Cannabis Research,” that was held at the Agriculture and Natural Resources (ANR) office in Davis. We would welcome your participation in this year’s workshop as we discuss how UC might best navigate the evolving cannabis research landscape.
This workshop will focus on opportunities for research collaborations within the UC system, as well as the policy, legal, administrative, and compliance issues associated with cannabis-related research. The objectives of this workshop are to:
- Explore ways to advance research collaborations and synergistic research on a range of relevant topics,
- Develop a common understanding of the current regulatory framework for conducting cannabis-related research, and
- Formulate next steps for facilitating new cannabis-related research.
Invitees for this workshop include UC Vice Chancellors for Research, researchers, and specialists from research compliance, campus counsel, controlled substances program administrators, sponsored programs, government relations, and research policy, among others. Please register by Friday, April 26, 2018 on this RSVP form

Please note that this event accommodates 120 people, and there are about 25 spots left as of April 22.
