In Memoriam Raphael Mechoulam 1930-2023


It is with great sadness we report the passing of Raphael Mechoulam, Ph.D. Raphi passed away peacefully on Thursday, March 9th, 2023, in his Jerusalem home. Dr. Mechoulam, "Father of Cannabinoid Research", was an outstanding Israeli chemist and researcher. His breakthrough work included the identification and synthesis of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and the discovery of endocannabinoids. As friend, colleague, teacher, and distinguished scientist we will miss him.
