🏷️ IACM — IACM honours Professor Raphael Mechoulam for 50 years of cannabinoid research
With a film the IACM would like to thank its former chairman Raphael Mechoulam (2003-2005), Lionel Jacobson Professor of Medicinal Chemistry at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. In the year 1964 Prof Raphael Mechoulam together with his colleague Prof Yechiel Gaoni published a ground-breaking scientific article on the isolation and complete elucidation of the structure of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol. Another research project initiated by him led to the isolation of the first described endocannabinoid anandamide, which was isolated and characterized by two of his postdoctoral researchers in 1992.
