St Jude Children’s Hospital recently named its new Memphis research facility the Inspiration4 Advanced Research Center in honor of Inspiration4, the world’s first all-civilian space mission. The spaceflight dedicated its launch to fundraising for St Jude’s, and successfully raised over $240 million for the hospital.

“The spirit of teamwork, exploration and courage that defined the Inspiration4 crew also fuels St. Jude researchers to accelerate progress in the understanding and treatment of childhood catastrophic diseases,” said James R. Downing, M.D., president and CEO of St. Jude Children’s Hospital.

The innovative facility houses state-of-the-art labs to continue pioneering treatments for children.
