About Us

The Lambert Center for the Study of Medicinal Cannabis and Hemp is part of the Institute of Emerging Health Professions at Thomas Jefferson University. Our goals are to:

  1. Provide expert-developed, unbiased information to clinicians and patients about the medical uses of marijuana, hemp extract, and other cannabinoid-focused therapies, 
  2. Conduct research and serve as a networking nidus for multicenter, multinational research to evaluate and elevate the evidence basis for cannabinoid therapy in multiple medical conditions, and 
  3. Provide best-in-breed support for the development of entrepreneurial and socially responsible business and clinical approaches within the emerging medical cannabis industry.

We have recruited an internationally renowned Steering Committee to lead the Center's academic programs, and an illustrious board of entrepreneurs and thought leaders to our business and social impact focused projects and research.

It is our privilege to provide this project in collaboration with the Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University’s Office of Continuing Medical Education, the Thomas Jefferson University Hospital - Department of Nursing and The Jefferson College of Population Health to provide this accredited activity. We also wish to thank the Pennsylvania Department of Health for their support and recognition of this program to satisfy the certification requirements in Pennsylvania.
