Rochester, N.Y., October 2, 2020 — The 2020 International Virtual Conference on Drug Discovery, Development, and Lead Optimization will be streamed online October 5th-7th, and will feature a full day Cannabis symposium on October 6th. The symposium is titled:
“Cannabinoids, Terpenes in Medicinal Regulation of the Endocannabinoid System.”
Ten elite scientists from around the globe will give presentations pertaining to the medical viability of Cannabis, including the following two keynote speakers:
Keynote 1: Lakshmi P. Kotra PhD| Professor, University of Toronto. Senior Scientist, University Health Network, Toronto, ON, Canada
Talk Title: “Bedside to Bud. Tying the Patient to Medicine”
Keynote 2: Dvora Namdar , PhD | Senior Research Fellow, Institute of Plant Sciences, ARO, Volcani Center Israel
Talk Title: “Cannabis Phytomolecules from Domestication to Medicalization, from “Entourage” to “Parasitage”, from Antiquity to Day.”
This event is being hosted by the United Scientific Group, an internationally recognized organization committed to scientific education and excellence. This three day symposium will explore cutting edge research and developments in drug discovery being done around the world.
Event chair, Harold Smith, PhD in molecular and cell biology and Professor at the University of Rochester said:
“I am enthusiastically looking forward to the keynote addresses and presentations in the day-long symposium on ‘Cannabinoids, Terpenes in Medicinal Regulation of the Endocannabinoid System’. While there remains global uncertainty as to the regulatory restrictions that may determine approval of cannabis therapeutics, the science of cannabinoids and terpenes is racing head-long. This includes advances in our understanding of what determines how plants produce cannabinoids and terpenes as well as what part of human physiology is affected by these compounds. The verifiable medicinal utility of these compounds either as full spectrum products or as synthetic compounds is the focus of cutting edge basic research and clinical sciences. This symposium and the 2.5 day-long conference will be of interest to biologists, chemists, bio-technologists, physicians pharmacists and other allied experts and trainees from academic institutions, government agencies, industry, societies, or non-profit organizations that will benefit from such an informative, scientific conversation.
