Callaghan Innovation is thrilled to be a bronze sponsor of MedCan Summit 2022, to be held virtually on 10-11 February.

10-11 February 2022

Building on the success of the 2020 event, and presented by Biotech New Zealand and NZTech, MedCan 2022 plays a significant role in growing scientific knowledge and understanding in this sunrise industry.

Learn from leading international and national thought leaders on seed to sale, clinical trials, prescribing, patient case studies, as well as the social, cultural and economic benefits to Aotearoa.

This is also your exclusive opportunity to hear from Helius Therapeutics, MedCan sponsor and recipient of NZ’s first GMP licence to manufacture medicinal cannabis products. Read more in our customer story here.

On day one, hear from Andrew Cameron, Callaghan Innovation Principal Consultant, and Anna Yallop, Bioresource Processing Alliance General Manager on Sustainable sector development through ‘whole plant’ utilisation, highlighting the commercial potential for medicinal cannabis and hemp using a ‘whole-of-resource’ approach. They’ll also demonstrate how the Bioresource Processing Alliance and research providers can support the industry to identify high-value opportunities from low-value biological resources.

On day two, don’t miss Simon Yarrow, Callaghan Innovation Group Manager, Agrifood, and his deep-dive presentation, Concept to commercialisation roadmap, on the huge potential for medicinal cannabis to boost NZ’s economy. Simon will explore how Callaghan Innovation can help businesses establish themselves in the medicinal cannabis industry, and provide insights on the development and evolution of the agency’s Hemp and medicinal cannabis capability roadmaps.

Callaghan Innovation will have a virtual exhibitor booth, where you’ll be able to book 1:1 appointments with the team and ask all your innovation questions.

If you’re currently working in the medicinal cannabis industry, or want support getting a medicinal cannabis product off the ground, you won’t want to miss this event. We’re also offering all Callaghan Innovation businesses an exclusive discount of  10% off the ticket price.
