From extraordinary resources and funding, to a work environment that fosters innovation, collaboration, and learning, St. Jude is a place where you have the potential to do your best and most meaningful work.
St. Jude develops more clinical trials for cancer than any other U.S. children’s hospital, and is the only NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center dedicated solely to children. Clinical research in oncology, hematology, infectious diseases and other areas is strongly supported as a cornerstone of the St. Jude bench-to-bedside model of patient care.
A majority of our clinical research team members have certification from the Society of Clinical Research Associates (SoCRA) or the Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP).
St. Jude supports employee certification by providing an onsite prep course and examination and by reimbursing fees. The St. Jude Office of Clinical Research Education offers regular workshops, sessions and other continuing education credit opportunities for clinical research certified staff.
St. Jude is accredited by the Association for the Accreditation of Human Research Protection Programs (AAHRPP), a recognition of our rigorous standards for ethics, quality and protections for human research.
Our clinical research teams consist of some of the world’s brightest minds working together in a fast-paced, continuously evolving environment. We’re problem solvers with a natural curiosity and motivation to advance our mission through new innovative treatment options for patients.
Exceptional resources and infrastructure
St. Jude gives our clinical researchers everything they need to do outstanding and innovative work. Our campus is home to superb shared resources for clinical research, including a pharmacokinetics core facility, biostatistics support, a biorepository for biological specimens and more. We are also home to the world’s first proton beam center designed solely for children.
Another major boon for clinical research is our robust on-campus infrastructure to support drug discovery and therapeutics development. Our on-campus Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) facility produces gene therapy vectors, antibodies and other biologics for use in St. Jude-led clinical trials. St. Jude also has a unique chemical library of more than 800,000 small molecules – one of the largest at any academic institution – for use in developing new therapeutics.
