NEWS FROM AND ABOUT THE SCIENTIFIC INTEREST GROUPS
NEW SIG: Cannabinoid Science and Medicine Interest Group
Highlighting the unique areas of research related to cannabis and cannabinoid science is the new Cannabinoid Science and Medicine Interest Group (CSMIG), which fosters engagement and communication among a diverse community of researchers in basic, clinical, and regulatory sciences.
CSMIG will cover a range of topics such as recent publications, emerging trends, innovative technologies, and opportunities for collaboration. The central focus will be on sharing knowledge and exploring safer approaches to improve human health through the study of cannabinoid therapeutics. This trans-NIH scientific interest group serves as a platform for initiating constructive discussions and gathering feedback on research ideas and findings. It will provide mentoring opportunities for trainees, with the objective of establishing a network of scientists committed to advancing translational sciences in the field of cannabinoids.
Discussions and meetings will be conducted through Zoom, hybrid, or in-person research seminars. Seminar speakers will include both intramural and extramural scientists in the field, who will present their work. NIH employees, researchers, and professionals from other extramural organizations are encouraged to join the CSMIG if they can contribute to the NIH mission and benefit from the group’s discussions and activities.
