TekStream is proud to congratulate the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as the 2013 Charity Winner! With research and patient care under one roof, St. Jude is where some of today’s most gifted researchers are able to do science more quickly.
The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay. Our vision is to be the world leader in advancing the treatment and prevention of catastrophic diseases in children.
This vision will be pursued by providing outstanding patient care? by conducting basic, translational and clinical research designed to elucidate biological mechanisms, understand disease pathogenesis, improve diagnosis, enhance treatment outcome, prevent diseases and minimize adverse consequences of treatment? and by educating health care and scientific research professionals. Through these efforts we seek to cure and enhance the quality of life for an increasing proportion of children who come to us for treatment, and by expanding and sharing knowledge, to advance treatment of children with catastrophic diseases worldwide, while developing strategies to prevent catastrophic diseases in children.
