The Cannabinoid Function in the CNS Gordon Research Conference aims to provide a cornerstone platform for dissemination of the most innovative and high-impact discoveries in the field of cannabinoid biology as they relate to CNS function broadly defined. The 2021 meeting will focus on cutting-edge work describing the impact of both plant-derived cannabinoids and endogenous cannabinoid signaling systems on defined cell-types and neural circuits with an emphasis on how these fundamental discoveries fuel cannabinoid-based therapeutics development for psychiatric and neurological disease. The scope of the conference will span from cellular and molecular neuroscience to clinical trials and will provide a venue for scientists at all levels to learn, present their work, and network in an inclusive and welcoming environment.
This GRC will be held in conjunction with the "Cannabinoid Function in the CNS (GRS)" Gordon Research Seminar (GRS). Those interested in attending both meetings must submit an application for the GRS in addition to an application for the GRC. Refer to the associated GRS program page for more information.
The conference will consist of nine sessions, on the topics listed below. The conference chair is currently developing their preliminary program, which will include the names of the invited speakers and discussion leaders for each of these sessions. The preliminary program will be available by November 1, 2020. Please check back for updates.
Poster sessions are an integral part of the our conferences, and offer all conferees an opportunity to discuss their research.
