“As a recipient of the Emerging Scientist Award, I’ve gained hands-on experience with cannabis and alcohol administration procedures and Dr. Karoly’s novel mobile drug administration laboratory. Serving as a graduate research assistant on this study has been instrumental to my development as a cannabis researcher and paramount to achieving my long-term goal of directing my own lab one day. Ultimately, the Emerging Scientist Award has allowed me to contribute to innovative translational research on legal-market cannabis that will inform both policy and practice.”
