Fundamental Discoveries Feed into Translational Research
At St. Jude’s Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, our commitment to basic research supports creative exploration and a deeper understanding of the genetic and molecular factors that cause disease.
We also bring innovative data and population science to bear in our work to support child health. Our researchers have the freedom to focus on the most compelling problems in their fields and a collaborative culture that draws us across disciplines.
St. Jude has leading research programs in many areas including:
Close to the Clinic
Cross-disciplinary collaboration is frequent and encouraged. Because of the close working relationships between clinicians and laboratory investigators, your work can have the potential to directly influence clinical trials for patients, and can take exciting new directions based on clinical findings.
Superb Resources and Facilities
Even as a student researcher, you will have access to an impressive array of state-of-the-art shared resources and core facilities. Each facility is staffed by experts who can train you on new technologies, execute experiments, or provide insights into experimental design and analysis.
Visits to St. Jude core facilities are incorporated into the first-year doctoral curriculum to allow you to observe the technologies in operation and learn about our extensive onsite capabilities.
Throughout your degree program, St. Jude core facilities and their expert staff are available to help you master new experimental approaches and accelerate your work.
