Welcome to CCIC 2.0! A lot has changed in the last year on the cannabis landscape in Canada, and here at the CCIC we have also undergone some significant changes. At the conclusion of the 5th Annual CCIC Congress in April 2018, the long standing Executive Director of the CCIC, Dr. Mark Ware, announced that he was stepping down from his role and that I was coming in as new ED.
This year the CCIC held its first Trainee Spotlight Award competition. Six winners were selected by a panel of reviewers from among a pool of over 30 applications to give platform presentations of their exciting new research at this year’s Cannabinoids in Clinical Practice meeting (Toronto, March 21 and 22). The selected awardees are also provided with $1,000 and waived registration fees to offset the cost of travel to the meeting.
