Lake Superior State University Opens Cannabis Chemistry Facility

From Cannabis Product News, February 25, 2020.

Lake Superior State University (LSSU) hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony for its Cannabis Center of Excellence on Friday, Feb. 21. LSSU has partnered with Agilent Technologies Inc. to facilitate education and research in cannabis chemistry and analysis establishing the Cannabis Center of Excellence (CoE).

The CoE is a facility aimed at a convergence of education and research across the sciences related to the rapidly expanding cannabis industry. This strategic partnership helps to strengthen the first program in the U.S. focused squarely on cannabis chemistry. LSSU is a premier training center for the next generation of quantitative chemists that possess the skills necessary to thrive in both the scientific and cannabis communities alike. The LSSU Cannabis CoE is housed in a dedicated 2,600 sq. ft. facility within the Crawford Hall of Science.

The focus of the new LSSU Cannabis CoE is training undergraduate students as job-ready chemists, with hands-on, innovative experience using state-of-the-art instrumentation and industry protocols. Students will use Agilent’s preeminent scientific instruments in their coursework and in faculty-mentored undergraduate research.
