A Bar Harbor landmark since it was established in 1929, The Jackson Laboratory today is home to 38 biomedical research teams. These scientists research the genetic causes of cancer, obesity, diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, glaucoma and many other diseases and conditions, using the mouse as a model.
JAX Genomic Medicine is a new nonprofit institute located in temporary space on the University of Connecticut Health Center campus while a permanent facility is constructed. Scientists there research the complex genetic causes of disease and develop genomic solutions tailored to each person's unique genetic makeup.
The Laboratory's state-of-the-art JAX-West facility provides JAX® Mice and extensive in vivo, cancer and stem cell services to the pharmaceutical, life sciences and medical research communities throughout the western United States and Canada.
