The Medical Cannabis Research Fund (MCRF) was established in August 2016 by Dr. Jacob Miguel Vigil with the singular mission to harness the vast intellectual and technological resources from UNM and the larger Central New Mexico community for conducting sound and ethical research on medical cannabis. The MCRF supports wide-ranging and often multi-disciplinary research programs that advance basic and clinical knowledge on the safety and potential medicinal uses of Cannabis. The MCRF also supports student training, academic assistantships and professional programs that advance research on medical cannabis.
