Professor Tony Bacic and Dr Monika Doblin, together with other University of Melbourne researchers have been awarded an Australian Research Council Linkage Grant to enhance the production of cannabis for medicinal purposes.

Working with UTT Biopharmaceuticals, the researchers aim to develop pilot-scale production of therapeutically-active compounds from cannabis, known as cannabinoids, which have potential applications in pain relief as well as relieving symptoms of MS and neurodegenerative conditions such as Parkinson’s disease.
