CANNABINOIDS AND GERONTOLOGY

Ongoing

Within the last decade, both the "illegal" and "legal" uses of marijuana and cannabidiol (CBD) has opened new avenues of research involving THC and CBD. In the Ashpole lab, we aim to understand how  THC and CBD exposure in mice alters both molecular and behavioral changes seen in advanced age. This project is currently ongoing.
