St. Jude creates more clinical trials for cancer than any other children’s hospital. And St. Jude is unique in that the discoveries made at St. Jude are shared freely, so every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists can use that knowledge to save thousands more children around the world.
One of the most exciting projects that St. Jude shares with the world is the Pediatric Cancer Genome Project, led by St. Jude and Washington University in St. Louis. This ambitious effort seeks to discover the genetic origins of childhood cancer and find new cures. Raw sequence data for all published results is freely available to the global research community.
By sharing findings from its research projects like this one in real time, St. Jude is helping hospitals and institutions worldwide to make advances in the global challenge that is curing childhood cancer.
