First Ever Online Event Focused on Cannabis Science
News Sep 20, 2017
The cannabis industry is at an all-time high but, significant challenges remain. Cannabis is federally unregulated and, in many cases, under-regulated by states in which medicinal and/or adult consumption is sanctioned. With cannabis still classified as a Schedule I drug, scientists seeking to conduct research on cannabis or cannabinoids must navigate a daunting series of review processes before they can even begin their work.
Brought to you by publication, Analytical Cannabis and taking place on September 27, The Science of Cannabis is a free to attend one-day online event accessed via PC, tablet, or mobile. Bringing together experts from testing companies, regulatory organizations, and world-leading vendors, The Science of Cannabis will explore this rapidly developing field.
Jack Rudd, Cannabis Science Editor for Technology Networks, commented: “The challenges currently faced by scientists and regulators within the cannabis industry make it more important than ever to promote education and communication. Great science and competent cannabis testing are what will help keep consumers and patients safe, whilst ensuring they receive the medicine that is right for them.”

Cryo-EM Imaging Suggests How the Double Helix Separates During ReplicationNews
Scientists reveal the atomic-level structure of twin helicase enzymes loaded head to head, with the DNA double helix visible in the circular channel that runs though both helicases. The configuration, a part of the pre-replicative complex (pre-RC), has never been successfully imaged in this configuration before.READ MORE
Virus-like Particle Vaccine Protects Against RSV Vaccine-Enhanced Respiratory DiseaseNews
Researchers have discovered that a virus-like particle vaccine can prime the body's immune response and prevent the severe respiratory disease that results when patients given an early form of a vaccine for respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) are exposed to RSV, according to a study led by Georgia State University.
Machine Learning Translates 'Hidden' Information to Reveal Chemistry in ActionNews
A team have used neural networks and machine learning to teach computers to decode previously inaccessible information from x-ray data, and then use that data to decipher 3D nanoscale structures.READ MORE
