Dr. Cardosi completed his undergraduate training cum laude and was invited into Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society and Phi Sigma Biological Research Honor Society at Bucknell University, where he also conducted molecular biology research in the lab of John Tonzetich, PhD, creating a genomic library of Drosophilia hydei and carrying out subsequent experiments to identify and characterize telomeric DNA sequences.
He received his MD Degree at Dartmouth Medical School. During his medical training, Dr. Cardosi also provided emergency medical care as a member of the ski patrol and was awarded two Dartmouth-Norris Cotton Cancer Center student research grants to conduct molecular biology research in the lab of Dr. Lloyd Kasper, where he screened Toxoplasma gondii cDNA library with human and animal antisera to isolate genetic sequences coding for antigenic peptides.
