Empowering research for a disease-free life.
The Jackson Laboratory (JAX) is making a new future of human health and personalized medicine possible — using an individual’s unique genomic makeup to predict, treat and even prevent disease.
Founded in 1929, JAX is an independent, 501(c)3 nonprofit biomedical research institution that seeks to decipher the biological and genomic causes of human disease— by using the mouse as our model.
Our research breakthroughs have helped form the foundation of modern medicine. Organ and bone marrow transplants, stem cell therapies, and in vitro fertilization all have a foundation in JAX research.
Today, JAX is integrating mouse genetics and human genomics to decipher the genetic and molecular causes of human health and disease.
JAX uniquely amplifies the efforts of the global biomedical research community. We develop and share our research, innovative tools and solutions, ever‑expanding data resources, more than 11,000 specialized mouse models and services, and a suite comprehensive educational programs to empower basic scientific research and speed drug discovery across the globe.
JAX is always looking for highly skilled and reliable contractors.
