A rare look behind the scenes at the largest cannabis laboratory in Israel. Prof. Dedi Meiri’s mission is to thoroughly map the cannabis plant so physicians can prescribe the exact treatment and dosage a patient needs. He has launched the Database Project, which exhaustively profiles compounds given to Israel’s 60,000 medical marijuana patients and works with Israel’s Ministry of Health to advance its understanding of cannabis usage.
Every day, Prof. Meiri and his team of 44 researchers are developing methods for analyzing the active compounds in over 900 different types of cannabis plants, and investigating the therapeutic potential of cannabinoids, the naturally occurring chemicals found in the cannabis plant.
You will learn more about this cutting-edge work happening exclusively at the Technion, and hear how Prof. Meiri is applying his knowledge of cannabinoids to tackle diseases like cancer, epilepsy — and even diabetes. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to view
the lab and hear Professor Meiri discuss his work in a TED-style talk recorded specifically for this event.
