Lake Superior State University Opens Cannabis Chemistry Facility
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.
Please join us for the opening of the Cannabis Center of Excellence for the first Cannabis Chemistry Bachelors degree program in the United States! Happening tomorrow, February 21 at 3 pm in Crawford Hall in front of room 309⚓️💛💙. #lssu #mylakestate #lssucampuslife #cannabis #cannabischemistry #cannabisprogram
