Massachusetts-based cannabis testing company MCR Labs will host its inaugural “Cannabis Science Fair” at The BUild Lab IDG Capital Student Innovation Center on December 11.
MCR Labs is partnering with The Cannabis Center of Excellence (CCoE) and Innovate@BU to organize the event, which is billed as “an exhibition of research and progress from the institutions working to expand our cannabis knowledge.” Groups interested in showcasing their cannabis-focused work at the science fair are invited to submit abstracts and other materials to MCR Labs via https://ma.mcrlabs.com/event/the-cannabis-science-fair.
“We’re extremely excited about the potential for this event,” said Melissa Kenton, MCR Labs event and outreach coordinator. “It’s been on our radar for over a year, and we cannot wait to see what our fellow cannabis scientists and innovators are ready to share with us and the community.”
Submissions for the Cannabis Science Fair will be assessed by MCR Labs and their event partners and selected for inclusion based on the soundness of methodologies, their potential scientific or industry impact and how thoroughly their findings are presented. A limited number of submissions will be selected for full presentations, poster presentations and demonstrations of any devices or prototypes.
Projects chosen to be exhibited at the Cannabis Science Fair and other details about the event will be announced in November. Sponsorship opportunities are available and the event will be free to the public. Please contact MCR Labs for additional information about the event and how to join.
