Academic Programs in Biomedical Sciences

Young physicians and scientists in training today hold the key to making St. Jude's goal a reality - finding preventions and cures for the potentially fatal illnesses of childhood.

St. Jude is a place where top scientists work with superb clinicians to find preventions and cures for potentially fatal diseases of childhood. Since St. Jude opened in 1952, we have become an international resource for the study and treatment of catastrophic childhood illnesses and have made dramatic progress in finding cures. There is much more that needs to be done.

We are dedicated to nurturing and supporting well-trained young scientific and clinical investigators because the successful future of biomedical research depends on it. Our academic training programs reflect our dedication and commitment to excellence. St. Jude trainees are able to learn from clinical and basic science investigators who are working together in the same setting where children benefit from their research. Clinicians work closely with laboratory-based researchers to translate scientific discoveries into improved therapies.

We invite you to become a part of the science at St. Jude through participation in the research institute and in the highly specialized children's hospital.
