Welcome to the Laboratory of Cancer Biology and Cannabinoid Research at the Technion’s Faculty of Biology, headed by Prof. Dedi Meiri. Our laboratory investigates the vast therapeutic potential of naturally-occurring metabolites from various species of cannabis and other plants algae, and fungi; elucidating their interplay with the human body. Our primary research focus revolves around understanding how these unique metabolites influence different types of cancer, inflammatory diseases and neurodegenerative disorders. The lab brings together a highly trained team of skilled professionals in the fields of analytical chemistry, molecular biology and immunology, working together to advance our understanding of how these natural compounds promote human health.
