St. Jude has treated children from all 50 states and around the world.


We don't keep trade secrets

St. Jude freely shares the discoveries we make so that researchers and healthcare providers around the world can use that knowledge to save thousands more lives.

We encourage other cancer research institutions to use our resources to aid in the global fight against childhood cancer; the raw data from the St. Jude-Washington University Pediatric Cancer Genome Project, the world’s most ambitious effort to discover the genetic origins of childhood cancer, is freely available to the global research community.


International outreach

For more than 20 years, St. Jude has worked with institutions in countries around the world to improve global survival rates for children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

The St. Jude International Outreach Program has 24 partner sites in 17 countries and we help train healthcare professionals on-site and through on-line resources so that they can use our knowledge and skills at their home institutions.


More than cancer

Aside from childhood cancer, St. Jude research is showing promising results towards developing a cure for malaria, an especially serious threat to millions of children around the world.
