The cover story in the February-March issue of Maine Ahead magazine is a "Private Tour" feature on The Jackson Laboratory, a detailed look behind the scenes at the nonprofit biomedical research institution.

"This is not a place for pessimists," writer Henry Garfield begins the article. "Peek into any laboratory off any corridor of the Jackson Lab--also known as 'JAX'--and you will find people energetically devoting their days to finding solutions to some of our most complex medical problems."

The 10-page story includes photos by Maine Ahead photography editor Leslie Bowman and Brice Bowman-Laberge, and interviews with Jackson President and CEO Rick Woychik, Ph.D., and other scientists and officials.
