Precision therapies. Better vaccines. Healthier, happier survivors. We dream big, and build our research programs to match.
The rate of growth of biological and medical data will continue to accelerate during the coming decade. Effectively managing, integrating, and exploring these data to generate new knowledge requires specialized expertise and innovative technology. St. Jude freely shares the data generated, and visualization tools engineered, with the global scientific community.
St. Jude has over 20 core facilities and research resources that provide expertise and cutting-edge technologies to support collaborative work across the institution. The scientists and technologists who staff the facilities can serve as expert hands, consultants, in-depth trainers, or full collaborators in the development of new approaches. These shared resources expand capabilities, accelerate research and foster innovation.
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.
