Increasingly, cannabis is viewed as much more than a recreational drug. Join Michael Udoh, a molecular pharmacology PhD candidate at Macquarie University, to discover another side of cannabis.

Find out medicinal purposes for cannabis and how its chemicals might affect areas of the body to combat chronic health conditions like epilepsy.

Michael Udoh is a pharmacist and drug discovery scientist. He currently researches how individual chemicals in cannabis affect different parts of the body. His discoveries have been presented at different conferences including the International Cannabinoid Research Conference and he aims to develop a cannabis-based formulation for pain therapeutics.  

This event is part of Inspiring Australia’s Talking Science series for National Science Week.
