The ElSohly Award provides researchers, students, and industry professionals with resources to present their work at the ElSohly Award Symposium at the Spring National Meeting of the American Chemical Society.
"As the President of Heidolph North America, I am pleased to support the growth of cannabis chemistry and research. Through the sharing of information and developments, these scientists are helping to shape the industry. There are some talented scientists doing good work and it is exciting to be able to help bring them to the forefront within the ACS community," said Jim Dawson, President of Heidolph North America and sponsor of the ElSohly Award.
When asked about this year's award Michael Coffin, Chair of the ElSohly Award commented, "It's been amazing to see this award grow and the research really take off over the last several years.
