Lab milestones and research highlights
The contributions of Jackson Laboratory researchers, leaders and employees over the past eight decades are too numerous to list. Nonetheless we selected a few of the Laboratory's milestones and some highlights from its remarkable history of research accomplishments.
From founder C.C. Little's early genetics experiments through recent facility expansions, the Laboratory has a long and proud institutional history.
The Laboratory has made profound contributions to research and medicine through the years and its creative, collaborative research into human diseases and conditions such as cancer, diabetes and obesity continues the tradition.
Twenty-four researchers won Nobel Prizes in Medicine or Physiology for research using inbred mice developed at The Jackson Laboratory, and two other Nobel Laureates have connections with the Laboratory.
