Humboldt Institute for Interdisciplinary Marijuana Research

The Humboldt Institute for Interdisciplinary Marijuana Research, or HIIMR for short, is a recently formed institute dedicated to generating high quality research relating to marijuana. Headed by Dr. Erick Eschker and Dr. Josh Meisel, this institute's aim is to be on the forefront of marijuana research. Those willing to help in a dedicated and professional manner can contact the professors to see if there are opportunities avaliable.


HIIMR seeks to improve the economic, social, physical, and environmental health of individuals and communities through the interdisciplinary scientific study of marijuana. Members of HIIMR will design, conduct, analyze, and disseminate research, as well as provide applied expertise to policy makers, researchers, health professionals, businesses, and the media. Members will also archive and provide access to source materials such as raw data and media.
