Blood Science Foundation
Founded more than 55 years ago, the Blood Science Foundation ensures that ITxM has the financial resources to provide long-term lifesaving services to the communities we serve. The Foundation supports ITxM by expanding the efforts of the Research Institute, making capital expenditures, and providing additional funds for operating budgets as necessary.
The growth of the Blood Science Foundation is representative of the financial stability and fund investment of ITxM. Now, with the Research Institute’s partnership with the University of Pittsburgh, the Foundation is increasing its support of research initiatives by providing multi-million dollar funding for important investigative projects. These long-term efforts may one day lead to a better understanding, and improved treatment, of blood disorders.
The Foundation’s commitment to the Research Institute and its extensive clinical research projects is just one more way we can fulfill our lifesaving mission.
