“Helping Hemp Heal: The Design of a Nano-Formulation to increase the absorption of Cannabidiol in the Gastro-intestinal Tract”

We have created this programme to encourage further innovation by our young scientists and provide them with commercialisation skills to carry forward into their careers and lives. The bootcamp is held at University College Dublin (UCD).

Shay Walsh, MD BT with Anna O’Connor

The Bootcamp experience has been life changing. I feel it has really opened up doors for me in regards to career options, developing my project and communicating better with people. I have met and heard from some amazing and inspiring people and I feel I have become more creative and innovative in the way I think.

Congratulations to all those that took part
