St. Jude freely shares its groundbreaking discoveries, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists can use that knowledge to save thousands more children around the world. And now St. Jude is sharing even more information about childhood cancer with the launch of St. Jude Cloud, an online data-sharing and collaboration platform that provides researchers access to the world's largest public repository of pediatric cancer genomics data.
Developed as a partnership among St. Jude, DNAnexus and Microsoft, St. Jude Cloud provides accelerated data mining, analysis and visualization capabilities in a secure cloud-based environment to researchers around the world. ?
St. Jude is making it possible to leverage the collective power of the global research community to make more discoveries more quickly in the rarest childhood diseases.
The World Health Organization has designated St. Jude Children's Research Hospital its first WHO Collaborating Centre for Childhood Cancer. The designation represents a new push by both organizations to expand efforts that will advance pediatric cancer survival rates worldwide. As a Collaborating Centre, St. Jude is partnering with WHO to develop strategies that strengthen the global resources, organization and planning needed to identify and treat pediatric cancer.
WHO brings its expertise in working with government, civil society and leaders across health systems regionally and globally. St. Jude offers experience working with multidisciplinary care providers essential to implementing and sustaining successful programs in countries around the world.
