Yesterday we celebrated National Cancer Survivors Day. St. Jude doesn't just treat children with cancer, but we follow our patients throughout their lives to yield insights into the long-term effects of pediatric cancer and treatment through the St. Jude LIFE study. Findings from St. Jude LIFE are informing new approaches to improve long-term survivor health.
St. Jude invites you to learn how we tackle some of the biggest challenges in clinical research. Reserve your spot for our live web-learning event: http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQWhP

May is almost upon us and it looks like you should come visit us this month. Here's a few more reasons why we love to call Memphis home!
Last week St. Jude launched the much-anticipated St. Jude Cloud, in collaboration with Microsoft and DNAnexus. This huge cloud-based database shows how we are working to eradicate childhood cancer worldwide through our partnerships with other cancer research institutions. In short, this fantastic resource is unique in that it will offer researchers the largest repository of Pediatric Cancer Genomics data, provide interactive data tools, verify research discoveries faster, and advance cures through collaboration.
We are so proud of our employees and what they are doing to find cures and save children!

Did you know that there are some patients who undergo chemotherapy (often known to cause hair loss on the body and scalp) who will also lose the hairs of the inner ear, which are irreplaceable and essential for hearing? Our researchers are honing in on a potential drug that can protect and restore hearing, not just for our cancer survivors, but also for those who have suffered a loss of hearing from other factors like noise or possibly aging. We are so proud of our team of researchers who work tirelessly to ensure a better life for our patients!
What an exciting time to be at St. Jude! This new research center will double our research space on campus which will allow us to hire 1,000 more employees over the next several years. We are breaking ground this spring.
