Lunch For Hungry Minds with Dr. Sara Jane Ward

Monday, Jan 30, 2017 | 4:30 PM-6:00 PM

Dr. Sara Jane Ward, research assistant professor in the Center for Substance Abuse Research at Temple, is an expert on the positive and negative effects of cannabis-derived chemicals, known as cannibinoids. Her laboratory has shown that use of the non-psychoactive compound cannabidiol has strong potential for the treatment of neuropathic pain as well as protection from neurological injury, while avoiding adverse cognitive effects. She will discuss the implications of this research and future areas of investigation.
