Comprehensive Cancer Center

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is the first and only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children. 

Our designation as a Comprehensive Cancer Center reflects leading excellence in patient care, research, education, and community outreach. The center was honored to receive the highest possible score of “exceptional” in our most recent NCI review.


Innovative Clinical Trials

St. Jude develops more clinical trials for cancer than any other U.S. children's hospital. Armed with leading-edge research, superb resources, and a strongly collaborative culture, we translate laboratory discoveries into new options for children with tough-to-treat cancers.
