This session will detangle the constructs of analytical method validation and method verification, provide a simple mindset for determining method uncertainty, and demonstrate risks of assuming that R2 >0.99 represents a “good” calibration curve.

Prof. Robert Strongin

In this talk, Prof. Strongin will dive into the chemistry of cannabis vaping

Linda Klumpers, PhD presenting “Cannabis Antagonists: Disgraceful Downfall, Promising Prospects”

‘Wonder Pills’ against obesity and substance abuse abruptly disappeared from the market over a decade ago, researchers now try to revive them for new applications.
