As more research has come out about potential vaccines, the St. Jude Progress blog tackles the question of why so many promising drugs fail. At St. Jude, faculty member M. Madan Babu, PhD, is leading a research laboratory that focuses on mining, integrating and analyzing biological data in innovative ways to glean new insights and knowledge that may lead to biomedical discoveries with clinical potential. Babu is a member of the Department of Structural Biology, endowed chair in Biological Data Science and director of the Center of Excellence for Data-Driven Discovery. His recent work on GPCRs provides a key clue as to why promising experimental drugs that target these receptors can fail to make the leap from the laboratory into the clinic.
A new portrait has appeared in a venerable portrait gallery at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. This rare occasion is always historic, but in 2020 it is especially so. Martine F.

St. Jude was recently awarded as a recipient of the Microsoft Corp.'s 2019 Health Innovations Award. Since it's unveiling in April 2018, more than 800 people from 400 institutions have registered with St. Jude Cloud. With this resource at their fingertips, researchers are able to receive immediate access to data that previously could take weeks to download. Our hope that this technology and the knowledge-sharing it enables can advance science and cures for childhood cancer, furthering our mission and the vision of our founder, Danny Thomas that no child should die in the dawn of life.
