Cardeza Foundation for Hematologic Research
The Cardeza Foundation for Hematologic Research was founded in 1941 by Mr. and Mrs. Thomas D. Cardeza as a memorial to Mr. Cardeza's mother, Charlotte Drake Cardeza. Since then, members of the Cardeza Foundation and Jefferson's Division of Hematology have been devoted to research into the causes of a wide variety of diseases of the blood and have initiated and participated in a number of clinical trials of newer types of therapy for many of these disorders.
The Cardeza Foundation supports faculty salaries, research programs, education programs and administration. For more information on research and education, visit the Division of Hematology at Thomas Jefferson University.
