St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is one of the world’s premier research and treatment centers for childhood cancer. With unique clinical trials, innovative science and comprehensive patient care, our physicians and researchers are defining new frontiers in pediatric oncology.
St. Jude develops more oncology clinical trials than any other U.S. children's hospital. Armed with leading-edge research, superb resources, and a strongly collaborative culture, we translate laboratory discoveries into new options for children with tough-to-treat cancers.
The roots of pediatric cancer are hidden deep within a child’s DNA. The St. Jude—Washington University Pediatric Cancer Genome Project is the world’s most ambitious effort to discover the origins of childhood cancer and seek new cures.
Improved treatments for childhood cancer have helped swell the ranks of survivors to more than 425,000 individuals nationwide. St. Jude is pioneering the field of cancer survivorship with major research programs that follow thousands of survivors for decades after their treatment.
