St. Jude Scientific Milestones

More than half a century ago, entertainer Danny Thomas envisioned a hospital that would care for children regardless of race, color, creed, or their family’s ability to pay. He recognized that scientific research and discovery would create the foundation to help treat children facing catastrophic diseases. Since St. Jude opened its doors on February 4, 1962, it has become one of the world’s premier pediatric research institutions. Explore the scientific milestones that have marked our progress from that day to now.
