UCR Center for Cannabinoid Research

The University of California Riverside Center for Cannabinoid Research (UCRCCR) is comprised of scientists and clinicians from across campus with common interests in advancing our understanding of roles for the endocannabinoid system in health and disease, and the impact of cannabis use on these processes.

Join us for the Inaugural UC-wide symposium, entitled “Cannabinoid Science and Community Health: Bridging the Gap” 

The inaugural symposium will be held Friday, May 3, 2024 from 12:30 to 6 p.m. in room 205 of the SOM Education Building II, University of California, Riverside.
