The John Renner Travel Award is given to medical students, residents, and fellows who are interested in learning about substance use disorders and co-occurring psychiatric disorders.
At the meeting, Nunes will present the paper, “The Influence of Childhood Trauma on the Effects of Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol in Persons with Opioid Use Disorder: Insights from a Randomized, Placebo-Controlled, Crossover Clinical Trial.”
