Columbia’s Ziva Cooper, Research Director of UCLA Cannabis Research Initiative and expert on psychoactive substances, gives us a private talk in Beverly Hills.
Marijuana, legal in many states including ours, yet illegal at the Federal level, is one of the hottest topics today. There is so much information – and misinformation – tossed around that it’s difficult to know what is fact and what is marketing, popular, or political fiction. Come learn from the leading expert and cutting edge researcher on THC, marijuana, and CBD, Dr. Ziva Cooper.
Dr. Ziva Cooper is the Research Director of the UCLA Cannabis Research Initiative in the Jane and Terry Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior and the Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences. Dr. Cooper received her PhD from the University of Michigan in Biopsychology in 2007 in the field of preclinical psychopharmacology. She then moved to Columbia University where she worked for over a decade on clinical studies of psychoactive substances including cannabis, opioids, and cocaine. Her current research involves understanding variables that influence both the therapeutic potential and adverse effects of cannabis and cannabinoids through double-blind, placebo-controlled studies. Dr. Cooper served on the National Academies of Sciences Committee on the Health Effects of Cannabis that recently published a comprehensive consensus report of the health effects of cannabis and cannabinoids. She is Past-President of the International Study Group Investigating Drugs as Reinforcers, a Board Director for the College on Problems of Drug Dependence, an Associate Editor of The American Journal of Drug and Alcohol Abuse, and is on several Editorial Boards of journals including Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research.
