"The gaming community's support is crucial to helping St. Jude advance research and treatment for childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Cancer is a multi-trillion-dollar, multi-year problem and funds raised from the Build Against Cancer livestream will be channeled toward the six-year, $12.9 billion St. Jude strategic plan that increases its global investment to impact more of the 400,000 kids around the world with cancer each year."
"Just last year, St. Jude opened a 625,000-square-foot facility called the Inspiration4 Advanced Research Center which focuses on transformative science and is designed for collaboration across scientific fields. Among other things, it is home to specialized technology for conducting computational biology, using artificial intelligence, gene editing and analyzing cell samples via some of the world's most advanced microscopes. There will be a biorepository onsite that contains tumor samples for sharing with researchers anywhere. These sophisticated resources keep St. Jude on the forefront of research on pediatric cancer and other catastrophic diseases."
