Brodie Thomson, a PhD student at the University of British Columbia, is definitely up there. His work on CBD degradation will open the eyes of many people to the complexity of cannabis formulations. 

Katja Mercer-Chalmers-Bender, now a researcher at the Official Medicines Control Laboratory in Munster, Germany, has also done some fascinating work on chemical differentiation of cannabis varieties through targeted and untargeted HRMS analysis. This is stuff I have been wanting to see for years. I am very jealous of her work. 

Michael Schafroth – who I know from our time together at ETH Zurich – is someone else who deserves recognition. He synthesized THC and its derivatives for ground-breaking work on stereochemistry in the plant and receptor docking.  

Personal mission? 

Create a body of work on cannabis research that will have a lasting effect on the industry,  and for the better.
