Established in 1962, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital uses research and treatment to find cures for life-threatening diseases like cancer that threaten children. The hospital has been the site of a number of remarkable breakthroughs.
– Thanks to its research, the survival rate for acute lymphoblastic leukemia has increased by 90 percent.
– In 2006, St. Jude developed a treatment for retinoblastoma, an eye cancer, that reduces the size of the tumor without the side effects associated with traditional chemotherapy.
– Scientific findings at St. Jude have helped to develop new cancer drugs, in part due to the hospital’s comprehensive whole genome human cancer data, released for use and research across the world.
