St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has 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 laboratory, clinical and survivorship research, as well as leadership in education and community outreach. The center has received the highest possible score of “exceptional” in its two most recent NCI reviews. In 2022, the NCI further recognized the center by extending its grant funding period based on sustained extraordinary progress, stability, and longevity.
The Science of Childhood Cancer is an interactive, weekly lecture series designed to engage the scientific community on key questions in pediatric cancer research. Invited speakers are leading experts across the spectrum of basic, translational, clinical and population science.
