McGill works with entrepreneurs to develop cannabis “idea incubator”

May 2, 2019

McGill University has announced that it is working with a group of Quebec entrepreneurs to develop an “incubator of ideas” that will be devoted to research on cannabis. La Pressereports that the project could breathe new life into a massive pharmaceutical complex in Montreal that was abandoned by the Swiss company Hoffmann in 1980. The Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences at McGill has reportedly signed an agreement in principle to establish its Cannabis Research Centre as part of the project. Dean Anja Geitman says that the centre will look to enter into research contracts with companies that might move into the new site. La Presse (QC)
