Preclinical Medicinal Cannabis Research

PC2 accredited pharmacology laboratories supporting investigations of pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, as well as characterisation of genetic and environmental determinants of constituent profiles.


Clinical Trials

Product-specific clinical research, including Phase IIa studies exploring the pharmacokinetics and safety elements of medicinal cannabis products within ICH-compliant clinical trial facilities.


Product Development

Capability to develop medicinal cannabis medicines from ‘bush to bench to bedside’: from early stage cultivation and pharmacognosy, in vitro and in vivo models, through to clinical studies for a go-to-market evidence-based product.



Our collaboration can provide training in medicinal cannabis for authorised prescribers, as well as general education for the public on therapeutic and safety considerations of the medical prescribing of cannabis.


Medicinal Cannabis Symposium 2018

Australia’s first collaborative medicinal cannabis research symposium was held at NICM in September, 2018. It brought together Australia’s best academics, researchers and educators in the field of medicinal cannabis under one roof, along with several leading international authorities.
