Loyalist College has announced the official opening of the Applied Research Centre for Natural Products and Medical Cannabis (ARC). The opening follows the college’s receipt of approval from Health Canada for a Controlled Drugs and Substances License in January 2017. “Loyalist has a highly successful 13-year, industry-driven track record of natural product extraction and analysis-based applied research,” said Loyalist President Ann Marie Vaughan. “The College has contributed $950,000 to the ARC to enhance lab extraction and analytical equipment, an investment which will truly set Loyalist apart.” ARC will provide industry with access to a hub of expertise and resources related to clean technologies.
