Honoring the Legacy of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

Take the Virtual Tour

A bronze bust of St. Jude founder Danny Thomas rests in the atrium of the Danny Thomas Research Center. It serves as a constant reminder of the dream that sparked the innovation and progress made each day in the research labs above.

Along the atrium’s paneled walls are commissioned paintings of Thomas, the hospital’s directors, CEOs and iconic St. Jude clinicians and scientists. The atrium’s portrait gallery is a tribute to their individual legacies, which together form a collective masterpiece of St. Jude past and present.

We invite you to learn more about this portrait gallery and the remarkable impact made by those honored on the walls.
