October 26, 2020

Loyalist College has received a five-year renewal of its federal license to conduct cannabis research at its Applied Research Centre for Natural Products and Medical Cannabis (ARC), and a three-year renewal of its analytical testing license. Loyalist says that ARC is the only federally supported Technology Access Centre for natural products and cannabis in Canada, and that it is an innovation hub for the region’s cannabis industry. “With partnership growth comes enhanced opportunities for our Bioscience and Cannabis Applied Science students,” said Loyalist President Ann Marie Vaughn. “They will be at the forefront of scientific developments which have the capacity to shape their bright futures.” Loyalist (ON)
