Office Hours:
11:00am - 1:30pm


With extensive research experience in plant biology and genetics, Dr. Sang-Hyuck Park provides leadership with multi-tier ICR cannabis research projects. This research primarily involves cannabis genetics and chemistry and more recently, he has been focused on uncovering genetic regulations underlying agronomically important traits including cannabinoid/terpene biosynthesis. In addition, Dr. Park serves as a liaison with other entities to facilitate expanding existing knowledge on cannabis and translating this knowledge into applications that benefit society. In 2020, Dr. Park founded the ICR Hemp Farmers Association (IHFA) and served as co-chair of the 4th ICR conference program committee.
