McGill University is one of Canada's best-known institutions of higher learning and one of the leading universities in the world. It is globally recognized for the excellence of its teaching and research programmes.


The McGill Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, founded in 1829, is Canada’s first medical faculty. McGill has been ranked number 1 nationally in the medical-doctoral category for 18 consecutive years by Maclean’s University Rankings. The Faculty is home to six renowned schools in the health professions and sciences, as well as close to 30 distinct research institutes and centres.


The McGill Research Centre for Cannabis is an inter-disciplinary research consortium that combines expertise in immunology, molecular pharmacology, respiratory medicine, genetics, oncology, supportive care and pain management for the biomedical component. It is supported by an integrated research plan in plants sciences, psychology, chemistry and education, as well as economics and law. It serves as a hub for integrated cannabis-related research activities spanning agriculture/plant sciences, chemistry, biomedical and socioeconomics. The Centre's mission is to provide education and training opportunities, knowledge mobilization events and evidence-based science to impact cannabis-related decisions/policies surrounding health, society and law.
